From leaking cups to toothpaste-flavored cookies, this saucy heroine has more than one inventive and relentless trick up her sleeve. And no one can escape her tomfoolery. Not even Peppermint, her eastern philosophy steeped talking dog. But when the tables are turned and her family does some scheming of its own, who will get the last laugh? Full of slapstick antics and whimsy, this boisterous celebration of adventure, play, and imagination is guaranteed to tickle your fancy and your funny bone!
