Daisy is a little girl. Her mum wanted her to be a brides maid in Aunntie Sue's wedding. But she didn't do dresses. Mum told her if you don't wear a dress, everyone in the whole world will be sad.

She gave mum several ideas, for example, souba gearor leopard skin suit or football kit. Those are funny.

Sue and mum beg her to come and try some dresses on. She said yes. Sue and mum rushed her to the wedding dress shop before she could change her mind.
She tried all of them in wedding dress shop. Everyone had run out of ideas.

In that moment, she told Sue and mum she got an idea. She wanted to wear one she designed.
When she got home, she laid out some paper on the ground in her room and starting to drawn what she wanted. She pinned the note on her door.
In the Auntie's wedding day, she wore the dress she designed. It was green silk and came with a black ninja headband maximum confetti action belt.

My Comment:
I love this book. It brings me back to my childhood. When I was kid, my parents would make the deal for what they want me to do. Sometime they think your idea was not good beacause I was kid. She is adorable child. She maked a wonderful idea and did a good job. She did what she really want to do. I think it is life. We have to do what we want to do with our passions, even jobs or everything.
