Harriet Gets Carried Away

Jessie Sima (Illustrator)
From the author and illustrator of the bestselling Not Quite Narwhal comes a sweet and funny story about remembering where you belong, no matter how far you roam, or what you're wearing when you get there. Harriet loves costumes. She wears them to the dentist, to the supermarket, and most importantly, to her super-special dress-up birthday party. Her dads have decorated everything for the party and Harriet has her most favorite costume all picked out for the big day. There's just one thing missing--party hats! But when Harriet dons her special penguin errand-running costume and sets out to find the perfect ones, she finds something else instead--real penguins! Harriet gets carried away with the flock. She may look like a penguin, but she's not so sure she belongs in the arctic. Can Harriet manage her way back to her dads (and the party hats!) in time for her special day?

Harriet, a lively and energetic little girl, gets carried away -- literally and figuratively -- in this sweet, whimsical story. Harriet and her two dads make a trip to the local market on a mission to find the perfect party supplies when she encounters real penguins who carry her away to Antarctica. Harriet is determined to find her way home to make it to her much anticipated birthday party, and, in the process, learns to love where she belongs. The digitially drawn characters are diverse and charming. Cool pastels will pull you in to Harriet's vivid imagination. Submitted by: Millie Thompson-Krug, Teacher, Shell Knob School District 78
