Synopsis

A small pig has a big day out

Molly is old enough and smart enough to do things on her own, like shopping. When her grandmother sends her to the store for beans, Molly forgets what she’s supposed to buy and gets potatoes instead. When her grandmother asks Molly what happened, Molly tells her that the clerk insisted that she buy the potatoes. But Molly gets caught in her lie when Grandma goes to the store to sort out the mystery. After a stiff warning that she should tell the truth, Molly is given another chance. Poor Molly! She drops Grandma’s coin purse on the way to
the store . . .

With her delicate, expressive illustrations, Eva Eriksson treats readers to a sweet story about a young girl who learns that she can make mistakes and still accomplish great things.
