"Fawn Braun is tired of living on a farm. She wants to live in the glamorous city she has seen in movies. Her mother and father extol the values of country life. Her young, next door neighbor, Larry, wants Fawn to stay because she takes him to the movies. Fawn cannot move, so she decides to act like she lives in the city. She wears fancy dresses and high-heeled shoes. When she realizes that her changes have some problems, she sadly returns to her blue jeans. Then Larry comes up with an idea. With the help of the community, he tries to replicate city life. Amusing hometown characters form part of the background of the digital illustrations. The discussion questions ask about fitting in, country versus city life, and movies as a source of information. The “Fun Facts” section tells of rural and urban population changes. One of the “Pfeffernut County” series, the end papers show a recipe for Pfeffernuesse cookies. This improbable story provides good questions for discussion." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
