Beatrice Bottomwell has NEVER (not once!) made a mistake...

Meet Beatrice Bottomwell: a nine-year-old girl who has never (not once!) made a mistake. She never forgets her math homework, she never wears mismatched socks, and she ALWAYS wins the yearly talent show at school. In fact, Beatrice holds the record of perfection in her hometown, where she is known as The Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes. Life for Beatrice is sailing along pretty smoothly until she does the unthinkable–she makes her first mistake. And in a very public way!

"The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes is a must read for any young (or old!) perfectionist. Beatrice Bottomwell is perfectly imperfect!"
-Stephanie Oppenheim, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio

"Beatrice offers a lesson we could all benefit from: learn from your mistakes, let go, laugh, and enjoy the ride."

Beatrice. When she got dressed, Beatrice—for no reason at all—put a polka dot sock on one foot and a plaid sock on the other. Beatrice and Carl made sandwiches. This time, they put the peanut butter and jelly on the outside. They called it an Inside Out PB & J! Lunch was messy and delicious! Later, Beatrice found Millie and Sarah skating in the park. They fell a lot. And laughed! Now, people no longer call her the Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes. They just

thinking about her Almost Mistake. On her way home from school, Beatrice watched Millie and Sarah ice-skating in the park. “Come join us!” said Millie. “It’s fun!” said Sarah. Beatrice watched them slip and slide on the frozen pond. Millie and Sarah laughed as they wobbled on the ice. “No, thanks,” said Beatrice. At supper, Beatrice barely touched her food. “Is everything all right, kiddo?” asked her father. “I’m worried I’ll mess up tonight,” said Beatrice.
