Elsie Times Eight

I didn’t realize that Natalie Babbitt (of Tuck Everlasting and Eyes of the Amaryllis fame) wrote picture books. But here is one she also illustrated. I’m fond of the name “Elsie” and that’s how I first spotted this.

In a case of miscommunication, Elsie’s parents end up with 8 of her. They’re noisy and rowdy and causing quite a pain so they have to track down her silly fairy godmother (who caused the problem in the first place) to set things right.
