When a little girl gets a yellow tu-tu for her birthday, she is so excited! She decides to wear it on her head so she can look like the sun--and she wears it to school thinking everyone will love to see her sunshine-y face. But, of course, the children laugh at her and make fun. All except one, who happens to have a pink tu-tu and an imagination of her own.

Parts of the story and illustrations were very cute. Then, some of the illustrations were just a bit too odd for my taste, the children looked a bit too wild about the eyes or something, I don't know. And overall the story just felt a bit too didactic. One thing I really did like is the fact that the mean kids didn't have some miraculous about face--the little girl finds one "kindred spirit" and they become friends. I think that is so much more realistic than the books that suddenly show all the bullies receiving a comeuppance or change of heart.
