Jocelyn loves her ballerina. She never takes it off despite her mother's attempts to put it into the laundry. When Jocelyn is wearing her ballerina she can twirl and dance up to the sky. It hugs her legs and keeps her warm.

When she is chosen to be the flower girl at Aunt Judy's wedding, however, her mother insists she wear a new pink lace dress. The new dress is scratchy and doesn't twirl at all! Jocelyn must come up with a way to wear her ballerina at the wedding! Will she manage it without Mom and Aunt Judy knowing?

Nancy Hartry's charming text and Linda Hendry's humorous artwork perfectly capture a little girl's determination to have her "security blanket" with her at all times. The hilarious conclusion will have young readers laughing aloud.
