This book is about a little girl mouse. She thinks her name is absolutely perfect for her because she thinks she is a perfect girl. She learns that you should never think something you're not sure of. She learned this from her music teacher.

This book reminds me of when I had a dance recital and I did a good job because they had a play at the end of the story and they did a good job with it. Chrysantheum was my favorite character because she has a pretty name. My favorite part was when she got to do the play because I like doing plays too.

I recommend this book because it has very colorful pictures. I think anyone who likes colorful things would like this book.
