Children's author Kevin Henkes creates works of brilliant wonder, and that magic bursts with life in this terrific animated collection of his stories. Meryl Streep gives a virtuoso performance as the narrator. Chrysanthemum loves her name, but when she goes to school, the other children giggle. "Her name is so long", said Jo. "It scarcely fits on her name tag", said Rita, pointing. Poor Chrysanthemum; even though her father says her name is "precious and priceless and fascinating and winsome," how will she persuade the other children in her class? Perhaps Mrs. Twinkle can come to the rescue!
