Fragility was a solid piece of work. But despite her sturdy exterior, Fragility was fragile. Anything and everything hurt her feelings. In the most benign compliment, Fragility heard an insult. No one could even say she looked nice without evoking images of big, squishy cupcakes-since they are also nice-and causing Fragility to flop on the ground and weep. Fragility's friends stop speaking to her for fear of another fit, but Rudy, a very rude bully, has other ideas. In the face of realinsults, will Fragility finally learn to take a compliment?

Editorial Reviews

Munsinger's illustrations prop up this...tale with a brace of good cheer and well-tempered comedy.
Kirkus Reviews

The punchy story line will keep children laughing, and Munsinger's characteristic watercolor illustrations bring the tale to life, making Lester's cretures all the more entertaining and enjoyable.
School Library Journal

Lester enhances the basic story about handling emotions with a satisfying slapstick humor that's beautifully extended in Munsinger's hilarious, wildly expressive illustrations.
Booklist, ALA

The visual humor and the many opportunities for group interaction may win the book its own cadre of storytime fans.
