For as long as Molly can remember, it's always just been her and Dad. Dad, who likes to splash in the pool, who likes to spin at the park, who bakes the best cookies around. But that was before Dad married Ms. Too. Ms. Too doesn't like to splash. She doesn't like to spin. And she can't bake anything. "But Molly, you used to love Ms. Too." That was before, when she was Molly’s favorite librarian. Now everything has changed.
But as Molly and Ms. Too are about to discover, maybe change isn't always scary. Maybe change can be the best thing of all. National Book Award finalist Laura Ruby and New York Times-bestselling illustrator Dung Ho bring us an unforgettable story of a stepmother and stepdaughter that celebrates the many different ways in which families are made and the beautiful, unknowable, magical things that hold them together.
"Molly isn’t ready to embrace the newly blended family. 'Ms. Too' (so nicknamed after the child begins asking, 'Is she coming too?') changes the wallpaper, and 'her books took up all the room in the house,' writes Ruby (Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All) in her picture book debut — never mind that Molly didn’t care for the old wallpaper and loves books.... Emotional rapprochement is a tricky topic, but it’s handled here with admirable subtlety, portraying one family’s work to arrive at their own understanding." — Publishers Weekly
