Product Description:
 
Molly Lou Melon may be tiny, clumsy, buck-toothed, and with a voice "like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor," but she doesn't mind. Her grandmother has utmost confidence in her, and tells her at every turn to believe in herself. "Sing out clear and strong and the world will cry tears of joy," Grandma says. But Molly Lou's self-assurance is put to the test when she moves to a new town, away from her friends and beloved grandmother. During her first week of school, Ronald Durkin taunts Molly Lou Melon in the dull-witted but sharp-edged manner of career bullies, calling her "shrimpo" and "bucky-toothed beaver." Our heroine barely flinches as she systematically sets out to prove herself, and Ronald Durkin ends up feeling pretty foolish.

First-time author Patty Lovell's message is clear and simple, and the theme is familiar enough to strike chords with every reader, young and old. David Catrow, illustrator of Take Me Out of the Bathtub and Other Silly Dilly Songs, Rotten Teeth, and other popular picture books, depicts a very weird-looking, very appealing little girl with warmth and cartoonish humor. Any child who is less than perfect will cheer with joy to meet Molly Lou Melon, a girl who doesn't let anything--or anyone--shake her belief in herself. (Ages 5 to 8)

By Autumn M Mantel
One of my and my 3 year old daughter's favorites. Even my 5 year old boy likes it (though he hates to admit it). We love how Molly wins over the mean boy by simply being proud of all of her "faults" he points out. GREAT story and cute pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Powerful & Heart Warming, February 25, 2016
By Allison M. Carlson
I love this book since the first time I read it with my girls. It has such a positive message. It reminds me of my Grandma so I bought her a copy for Christmas 2 years ago & I wrote a personal love note. She still brings it up how often she reads it.
