Lucy gets a Christmas gift that she knew would cause her no end of trouble from the kids at school. It is an oversized purple pullover sweater her aunt knitted for her with what looks to Lucy to be a pink gorilla in the front of it!
Groaning, Lucy thinks she looks like a giant furry grape but she did promise her aunt she would wear it.
The class bully and his friends have a great time spending the day taunting her. Lucy is embarrassed by their teasing and the monkey noises they send her way but she tries to ignore them.
If your kids or grandkids have ever received a gift they did not like and know what to do with, Lucy's Purple Pullover will certainly light their imaginations. Kavitha Punniyamurthi's illustrations are charming and she has written a story that shows children compassion and caring for other creatures.
