Millie is quiet. Millie is sweet. Millie is mild. But the kids at school don't listen to her. And she never gets a piece of birthday cake with a flower on it. And some girls from her class walk right on top of her chalk drawing and smudge it. And they don't even say they're sorry!
So that's when Millie decides she wants to be fierce! She frizzes out her hair, sharpens her nails and runs around like a wild thing. But she soon realizes that being fierce isn't the best way to get noticed either, especially when it makes you turn mean. So Millie decides to be nice -- but to keep a little of that fierce backbone hidden inside her. In case she ever needs it again.
With bright art and an adorable character, it's easy to empathize with Millie. Because everyone has a bad day, once in a while.

"Manning's vivid watercolor illustrations are engaging and will have readers rooting for Millie, even when her antics turn mean-spirited. Millie Fierce is a delightfully naughty mix between Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are and Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry." -- Stephanie Rivera, School Library Journal
