Christina Moore’s light-hearted and spirited narration captures the whimsy of Duncan’s outrageously fanciful story. Emily gets the fun rolling when she blows out the candles on her sixth birthday cake--she wishes for the longest hair in the world, so she can be the princess in the school play. Moore keeps the story moving with careful pacing that smoothly ranges from fast to slow, staccato to fluid, or frantic to peaceful. Her dramatization of Emily and her parents demonstrates her understanding of how families with young children work together to solve problems.
