This is the first book in a new series about helping children learn how to make good choices.

Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is that when left to make her own decisions, she can't say 'no' to her favorite things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can't turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won't be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she's been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say 'no' to good things to end up with something great!




My Review~


This is such a cute book~so many pictures that are beautifully illustrated. I like that in the beginning there is a star for the kids to look for to see if she is happy or sad. I never saw anything like this in a book. It is a very easy read for the kids and my grandson had it read in no time{he is 9} as he loves to read about adventures. I like that there is a lesson in here,as even he said that she was going to run out of money before she got there.He learned that sometimes it is OK to say No! This is a great read for boys and girls. Besides~who doesn't love cotton candy and the circus?!?

  10. I used to like those books where you could choose to go one way or another in a story and wind up with different stories. I can't recall what the name of the series was.
