* "A gift of a book for new readers. Kirkus Reviews, starred review
It's Dana's birthday, so she can do what she likes. And what Dana likes to do is pinch. And call people names. And steal her classmates desserts. You probably know a kid like Dana. What can stop her from being so mean? In this story, it's not what you might expect. Because sometimes, it takes a little creativity (and possibly a very large pet) to change a mean kid's ways. Five short chapters with comical full-color illustrations offer a fresh, fun take on bullying and birthdays (and pet elephants).
