Summary
Chrysanthemum loves her name, until she starts going to school and the other children make fun of it
Summary
Summary: Starting school can be a real test of one's mettle, especially for those with unusual names. Wee mouse Chrysanthemum has always loved the "absolutely perfect" name her parents gave her, but most of her kindergarten classmates have names like Joe and Sue and Bill, and they tease her for having the same name as a flower. Poor Chrysanthemum is terribly unhappy at school until the day the students meet their music teacher — Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
