In a tiny town, in a quiet place,
Lived a little girl with an angry face….

She hated her school. She hated her friends.
She hated the rules. And in the end,
All she was able to let anyone see,
Was her decision to live miserably.

When a grumpy little girl refuses to change her ways, her shadow decides to run away!

Soon the little girl is off on an adventure to win back her shadow, find out why it left, and perhaps learn to appreciate all the things she already has.

This adorable picture book is filled with fun illustrations and a cute message kids will love. With rhyming text and an intriguing storyline, it’s perfect for the whole family to read together.
