What Zuzu wants, Zuzu makes.

Cover of Zuzu's Wishing Cake

In her happy hands a brown paper bag becomes a flower or a hat. Cardboard becomes a tent, a telescope, or a car.

Zuzu makes everything into something else. But making a friend of the boy next door turns out to be harder than she thought.

Can she make him smile?

Hashim drives Zuzu's car.
