it was amazing

Elisabeth Keys wasn't very nice. She teased, argued, made fun of other kids and pushed her way in line. She didn't like anyone. When it came time to invite friends to her birthday party she received no phone calls or replies in the mail.. This made Elisabeth very sad. Elisabeth realizes that the way she treated the other kids at school may not have been a good thing to do. When she starts doing random acts of kindness the kids eventually give her a chance.

Cannon has done an excellent job of showing Elisabeth's bad manners and what can happen if you don't treat people with respect. Young readers will be able to openly discuss with their parents and teachers what happens and how it makes them feel when they don't have any friends. Brightly colored digital illustrations help bring the characters to life.
