Ask Dr. Marta Weekly – May 21


It’s Alex’s birthday but she is fit to be tied and annoying everybody in the house! Only one thing can soothe this peppery princess and he may not show up in time!

WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: Do you have a diva in the house? That’s exactly the trouble in this fantastical story of a little girl who is determined to have her way no matter who she ticks off in the process. Pat Cummings’ playful text and luscious illustrations make this story a listening and visual feast. Alex is a beautiful girl who wants only one thing for her birthday. When it seems she may not get her wish the world turns sour for all concerned. When she falls asleep strange things occur that may change her attitude. Grab a copy of this delightful book and discover the magic inside!
