Illustrated by Doug Cushman

When Ella turned five, her grammy sent her a present. It was the most perfect umbrella in the world! So perfect, Ella couldn’t bear to be parted from it. That presented some problems at home, and at school, and especially in ballet class. What will Ella do if she can’t bring her lucky umbrella with her to the dance recital? Never underestimate the power of a little girl’s love – where there’s a will there’s always a way!

“Weeks’ short text includes lots of repetitive phrases and sound effects that will easily
encourage participation. Cushman adds slapstick humor with double-page scenes of determined Ella, an Everychild who takes blunders in stride and finds creative solutions.”
