Best Day Ever - Cover
Best Day Ever
Marilyn Singer, Clarion Books 2021
Surprise! A book with a main character in a wheel chair - where the disability is never mentioned and has nothing to do with the story. The story is about a playful puppy, full of joy, who is also a nuisance (mud on the couch, knocked over lamp). How quickly a day can go from "best day ever" to "worst day ever" ... and stilll end up being a day filled with love.
