Madison Pratt is delighted to find a lonely plaid purse in the park one afternoon. "Don't worry. I'll take care of you," Madison says — but the purse's mad curse causes Madison, and her whole neighborhood, to turn plaid! Nobody knows what to do, and flipping the purse inside out doesn't help; all that does is spread the lining's sad blue all over the city. Will Madison's spunk and optimism help to reverse the curse before it's too late?
