Table of Contents

"This funny, true-to-life story with its detailed, softly-coloured pictures will delight young listeners and independent readers. Adults also will relate to Nellie's messes and to Grandma's failing eyesight.
CM Magazine

"A story that finds humor in a grandmother's failing eyesight and her granddaughter's ability to get messy, Waterton's nineteenth children's book is a gentle tribute to good intentions, no matter how they turn out. . . Freewheeling, gently washed, line-and-watercolor illustrations complete this funny package."

"(Betty Waterton) will delight children again with this droll story, jauntily illustrated by the playful, prolific Kim LaFave. . . Story and pictures work together well, and the text's dry humour lends itself splendidly to reading aloud."
Quill and Quire

Nellie sends her grandma a note that says she is going to be a bumblebee in the school play. Grandma knits Nellie a sweater to wear in the play. When, Nellie gets the sweater, she wants to wear it immediately and often. She keeps getting it dirty and her mother keeps washing it. The story is very funny and the illustrations are amusing too. My daughter loves this book. She does not want to return it to the library.
