Summary: Lilly loved school. She loved pointy pencils, squeaky chalk, sounds of her boots going down the hall, and most of all, Lilly believed that her teacher, Mr. Slinger is the most amazing teacher in the world. Mr. Slinger did everything just right. He was fun, interesting and made the most tasty treats. It was all well until the day when Lilly brought to school her new movie star sunglasses, three shiny quarters, and a brand new purple plastic purse. “Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse” is one of the funniest and engaging children’s books. To add to an already funny story, the illustrations deserve their own discussion. This book is one of the best!

Happy Reading!
