POPPY'S BEST PAPER
Written by Susan Eaddy * Illustrated by Rosalinde Bonnet
Poppy wants to be a verrrryyy famous writer.
When her teacher asks everyone to write a paper, Poppy is sure that hers will be the best. She starts writing-but soon gets distracted. There are so many other interesting things to do.
Then Mrs. Rose reads Lavender's paper to the class- Lavender, Poppy's best friend! It's not fair! Poppy worked so hard ... didn't she?
