The day she was born was the happiest day in her parents' lives. (from the first line)

She was a perfect baby, and she had a perfect name. Chrysanthemum.

Chrysanthemum loved her name--until she started school.

A terrific read-aloud for the classroom and libraries!

Annotation:
Chrysanthemum experiences the kindergarten nightmare of being made fun of, only to have the last word. The little white mouse loves and adores her name until the first day of school, when everyone makes fun of her mercilessly. Chrysanthemum has no idea her name is unusual until snooty Victoria points it out. Soon, Chrysanthemum is longing for something much plainer, like Jane. But when Mrs. Twinkle--the music teacher--steps in, she saves the day. With colorful illustrations.
Author Bio
Kevin Henkes
Author and illustrator Kevin Henkes had his first book, entitled ALL ALONE, published in 1981 when he was only 19 years old. Since then, he has become an enormously popular author of picture books and novels for middle-grade readers, notably the Newbery Honor Book OLIVE'S OCEAN. Many of Henkes's picture books, such as JULIUS THE BABY OF THE WORLD and LILY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE, feature the character Lily--a feisty white mouse. In 2005, he was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Medal for his charming, duotoned KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON. In 2006, he received the Sterling North Legacy Award for Excellence in Children's Literature.

Praise

"The impressionistic floral backdrops and patterning reinforce the story's lighthearted, yet tender theme. This sensitive story will strike a chord with young children, particularly those who also have difficult or unfamiliar names." 9/1/1991
