The One and Only Marigold

The One and Only Marigold by Florence Parry Heide, Jill McElmurry (Illustrator)
Relates the misadventures of Marigold, who does not agree with anyone, as she shops with her mother for a coat, becomes interested in a new hobby, finds a way to "bug" her best friend, Maxine, and imaginatively copes with finding the right outfit for the first day of school. Pictured here the author, Florence Parry Heide.

...McElmurry outdoes herself with gorgeous landscapes, and with Marigold’s goofy hair and stubborn stances infuses even more humor into the already laugh-out-loud stories.
