Synopsis

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes

Hooray For Lilly! Lilly loves everything about school, especially her teacher, Mr. Slinger. But when Lilly brings her new favorite things movie star sunglasses (complete with diamonds) three quarters (shiny ones) a purple plastic purse (it plays lively music when opened) to school, and insists on showing them to everyone even though it is not Sharing Time, Mr. Slinger is not amused. In fact, Mr. Slinger confiscates her prized possessions. Lilly's fury leads to revenge and then to remorse as she sets out to make amends, in this modern classic by the beloved Kevin Henkes.

Reviews

Lilly is one of the great female characters in literature--like Anna Karenina with whiskers or Scarlett O'Hara with paws. -- USA Today In all of children's literature there is just a handful of characters we think of as family--Madeline, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Charlotte come to mind--and when this young generation is old enough to reflect on the ones it loved, Lilly will probably lead the pack. -- New York Times Book Review
