Product Description

In the 20th Anniversary Edition of Lilly's Purple Purse by Kevin Henkes, Lilly loves school and thinks the world of her teacher Mr. Slinger. When Lilly comes to school one day with a new purple purse, fancy glasses, and shiny coins, she is SO excited to share with her class, and she doesn't want have to wait until recess or sharing time. When Lilly disrupts the class, her teacher confiscates her treasures until the end of the day. Lilly is mad at Mr. Slinger and seeks revenge, and in the end learns an important lesson about admitting your wrong doing and seeking forgiveness.

Publisher's Description

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is twenty! In 1986, Lilly—award-winning author Kevin Henkes’s exuberant and beloved mouse character—finally got her first starring role with the publication of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. As USA Today proclaimed, “Lilly is one of the great female characters in literature—like Anna Karenina with whiskers or Scarlett O’Hara with paws.” A modern classic, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse has sold more than one million copies and was named to ten “best of the year” lists. This special twentieth anniversary edition features a letter from Kevin Henkes about Lilly printed inside the book, and a celebratory and sparkly foil jacket.

Editorial Reviews

“Lilly is one of the great female characters in literature—like Anna Karenina with whiskers or Scarlett O’Hara with paws.”
“In all of children’s literature there is just a handful of characters we think of as family—Madeline, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Charlotte come to mind—and when this young generation is old enough to reflect on the ones it loved, Lilly will probably lead the pack.”
