Description

Elise Parsley's tale of the charismatic and willful Magnolia's disastrous trip to the beach follows up her New York Times bestselling debut, If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!

If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee, or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination, and one very heavy upright piano that, she insists, she needs to take with her. What's the worst that can happen? In a riotous series of mishaps, Magnolia quickly learns that--not surprisingly--a piano doesn't mix well with sand, sun, and seagulls!

Review Text

Praise for If You Ever Want to Take a Piano to the Beach, Don't!:

"Magnolia's voice is wonderfully childlike... her facial expressions top all, perfectly capturing both her exuberance and her mood swings. A delightful demonstration of just one of many things not to take to the beach; the brainstorming possibilities are endless."-Kirkus Reviews
