Everyone's favorite teacher, Mr. Slinger, is about to be married. Mr. Slinger has plans for the big day; student Lilly (who is a mouse) has plans, too. The funny thing is that the plans don't match! During the next few days, Lilly uses every classroom resource to hint to Mr. Slinger that she would be a spectacular flower girl. Laura Hamilton captures the warmth, humor, and compassion that Henkes infuses into his "mouse" books. She is light and breezy when Lilly's mood is glorious and pouty when Lilly feels that nothing is right. Hamilton's deliberate pacing allows listeners to appreciate the story's events and engaging illustrations. Background music adds to the recording.
