What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” In this imaginative take on that popular saying, a child is surprised to receive a lemon tree from Grandma for her birthday. After all, she DID ask for a new gadget! But when she follows the narrator’s careful—and funny—instructions, she discovers that the tree might be exactly what she wanted after all.

This book is totally adorable! It’s got lovely manners, entrepreneurship, and family all wrapped up in one spunky package just right for all ages. The illustrations are bright and punchy and feature a slew of diverse characters (with diverse interests—check out what’s going on in the windows) which is fun and adds another layer to the story.

The illustrations and story are very clever, both in describing what not to do when your Grandma gives you an undesired gift, and in showing what good can come from being gracious in receiving an unexpected gift and mixing in a little ingenuity and hard work.
