Author: Patty Lovell
Pictures by/Illustrator: David Catrow

ISBN-10: 0399234160
ISBN-13: 978-0399234163

Main Character(s): Molly Lou Melon

Summary:

Molly Lou Melon  is shortest girl in 1st grade.
She also has really buck teeth that she can stack pennies on, and sounds like a bullfrog.
Molly is not afraid to be herself and holds her head up high.

What I learned from the story: To be able to have fun and be proud of yourself because you are different. And not to make fun of other people because they are different.

My favorite part of the story: My favorite part of the story was when Molly wrote a letter to her grandmother and thanked her for all of the good advice. I also really liked the pictures and colors in the book.

My rating: 5
