Elizabeth loves her name—in its entirety. She likes that it has nine letters. She likes that there is a queen named after her. And she likes “all the neat things my mouth does when I say it.” Fed up with those who dare to call her Lizzy, Liz, Beth, or Betsy, Elizabeth finally declares in no uncertain terms exactly what she wants to be called in Annika Dunklee’s amusing picture book story. Matthew Forsythe incorporates additional humor into illustrations showing Elizabeth, her family, her pet duck, and all the hapless individuals who learn to call her by her given name. His distinctive aqua, orange, and white palette is perfect for illustrating this book about a singular, spirited girl. (Ages 3–6)
