Sassy Gracie, Cook's energetic helper, loves to dance in her big red shoes with the big red heels--CLUNKETY-CLUNK! CLUNKETY-CLUNK! But on Cook's day off, Sassy Gracie's enormous appetite (from all that dancing) gets the better of her. The delicious dinner she has prepared for the master of the house is soon reduced to a pile of well-picked bonesand an important guest is on his way! Does the plucky pigtailed heroine find a silly, sassy way out of the trouble she has created? You bet she does! The spirited text and vibrant illustrations in this unusual picture book are as full of whimsical, dancing energy as the mischievous heroine herself.
