Think Cool Thoughts (Hardcover)
Seven-year-old Angel is suffering through the hottest day of her life—ever! Between the heat and the summer doldrums, her whole family is miserable. Then her mother and her aunt Lucy surprise her by suggesting they sleep out on the roof. Angel makes the most of this thrilling escape from the ordinary, and, best of all, morning brings the long-awaited relief. Fanciful, tender illustrations celebrate the everyday magic of a summer rain shower and the kind of shared moments that become a family’s lasting memories.
Elizabeth Perry is a teacher, a writer, and a new-media artist. This is her first book. She lives with her family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
