Jessie Sima, "Harriet Gets Carried Away"

FROM THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR OF THE BESTSELLING NOT QUITE NARWHAL COMES A SWEET AND FUNNY STORY ABOUT REMEMBERING WHERE YOU BELONG, NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU ROAM, OR WHAT YOU’RE WEARING WHEN YOU GET THERE.

Harriet loves costumes. She wears them to the dentist, to the supermarket, and most importantly, to her super-special dress-up birthday party. Her dads have decorated everything for the party and Harriet has her most favorite costume all picked out for the big day. There’s just one thing missing—party hats!

But when Harriet dons her special penguin errand-running costume and sets out to find the perfect ones, she finds something else instead—real penguins! Harriet gets carried away with the flock. She may look like a penguin, but she’s not so sure she belongs in the arctic. Can Harriet manage her way back to her dads (and the party hats!) in time for her special day?

Jessie Sima is an author/illustrator living and working in New York City. She grew up in a small town in Southern New Jersey, unaware that she was a storyteller. Once she figured it out, she told her family and friends. They took it quite well. She is the author of Not Quite Narwhal and Harriet Gets Carried Away. You can visit her at JessieSima.com.
