By Kevin Henkes
Adapted for the stage by Kevin Kling

“Opera diva, ambulance driver, hairdresser to the stars or schoolteacher–so many decisions for one spunky, young mouse to make! Based on Kevin Henkes’ beloved books. Lilly learns how to overcome anger and frustration when her favorite teacher takes away her new purple, plastic purse and keeps it until the end of the school day.”
