For fans of Fresh Princess, Fancy Nancy, and Lola Dutch, this second bighearted picture book starring the spunky Zuri Ray highlights how much fun can be had even when plans fall apart.

Zuri Ray is back! And this time, she's got a party to plan. With summer coming to an end, a backyard bash is an absolute must, and Zuri's not letting her parents' questionable tastes anywhere near the details. The food, the decorations, the entertainment—everything has to be perfect. Good thing her friends are ready to help!

But when the party doesn't go exactly according to plan, will Zuri be able to let loose and improvise? Or will the chaos be too much to handle?

"The vibrant, animated illustrations are great fun. An excellent story of initiative, planning, and what to do when plans go awry; highly recommended." -School Library Journal “Sordo’s colorful, digitally created illustrations portray a loving, diverse community of friends and family. A well-told story featuring creative kids who excel at fashioning their own fun.” -Kirkus Reviews
