Texts and Tunes: Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse

What's not to like about a spunky lil mouse who dons red cowboy boots and has a feisty attitude? Lilly the Mouse has all that and more.

Author Kevin Henkes tells a charming and educational tale in Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse ($11). So excited that she just can't hide it, the wee varmint shows off her new purse against her teacher's warnings. Admonished for her naughty behavior, Lilly can't handle the punishment, which only gets her into more trouble. Lilly learns how to cope with disappointment the hard way and eventually finds joy in unexpected places.
