She knows the best way to impress her guests is with a fabulous soiree, and there’s a lot on her to-do list. But when the night doesn’t go as planned, she’ll have to rely on a little help from the people she loves most.

She is the author of the bestselling picture books I Love My Hair!, Bippity Bop Barbershop, and The Me I Choose to Be, among other titles.
