Elise Parsley's tale of the charismatic and willful Magnolia's disastrous trip to the beach follows up her New York Times bestselling debut, If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!
If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee, or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination, and one very heavy upright piano that, she insists, she needs to take with her. What's the worst that can happen? In a riotous series of mishaps, Magnolia quickly learns that--not surprisingly--a piano doesn't mix well with sand, sun, and seagulls!
