Why a disguise? There are times when it's useful for a kid to assume a new identity--especially when it's your turn at the dentist's office, or Mom is serving lima beans, or when the class bully is waiting for you after school. Numeroff shows readers many ways there are to enjoy being someone different, and reminds them that it's nice to know they're still themselves at the end of the day. Full color.

About the author (1999)

Laura Joffe Numeroff was born in Brooklyn, New York on July 14, 1953. When the time came for her to choose a college, she only applied to Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn for fashion design. She hated everything about it and ended up taking a class in writing and illustrating books for children because it sounded like a great class. She received an assignment to write and illustrate a children's book, and after completing it, made several attempts to get it published. After only 4 rejections, Macmillan bought it. She graduated from college with a degree and a contract for her first book. Since then she has written over twenty books including If You Give a Mouse a Cookie; What Mommies Do Best, What Daddies Do Best; Laura Numeroff's Ten Step Guide to Living with Your Monster; Phoebe Dexter Has Harriet Peterson's Sniffles; Ponyella; If You Give a Dog a Donut; and It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse! She has received numerous awards including the Buckeye Children's Book Award in 1989, the Quill Award for If You Give a Pig a Party in 2006, and the Milner Award in 2007.
