Best Thing Ever!

Beatrice Alemagna

A new title featuring Pascaline, the delightful creation of award-winning picture-book maker Beatrice Alemagna and star of Never, Not Ever!

Pascaline the little pink bat loves to go shopping! There are so many amazing things to buy, if only her mother would get them for her. But one day, Pascaline has a meltdown that leads to an adventure—and gives her a whole new view of what the best thing ever REALLY is.


[With] charming illustrations, rendered in watercolor, pastel, pencil, and fluorescent pink crayon… The adventure is enjoyably surreal, and the conclusion is heartwarming… Sweet storytelling.

— Kirkus Reviews

Alemagna's illustrations are magical and will win over young readers quickly… She's a character many children will relate to easily… A delightful delve into the experience of parents and children who get the 'gimmies' in public.
