On Monday morning Bertie woke up bright and early.
He remembered that it was Picture Day.
He remembered that Mrs. Hughes
told them to look spiffy.
Bertie is determined to look his very best for his second grade school picture on Monday. In fact, he even plans to wear his red polka-dot bow tie. But before the weekend's over, Bertie loses a front tooth, gets a shiner, and receives a "terribly interesting" haircut from his little sister Eloise.
Bertie and Eloise, whom young readers met in Hot Fudge Hero, are backand as charming as ever. In their smart and playful style, Pat Brisson and Diana Cain Bluthenthal capture these endearing characters in all of their trials and triumphs.
