Maude the Not-So-Noticeable Shrimpton

Lauren Child

Maude is the quiet middle child in a flamboyant family where everyone tries to be noticed. Her mother wears gigantic colorful hats, her father sports a mustache full of butterflies, and her three siblings sing, dance, and act whenever they can. On her birthday Maude asks for a pet goldfish, but her family gets her a tiger. One small detail is overlooked - tigers get very hungry. At this point Maude's ability to blend in serves her well. This tale about being true to oneself is "stylish and gleefully wicked." An eye-catching picture book from the award-winning author of the Ruby Redfort series. Ages 5-7
