Actress Julianne Moore's second semi-autobiographical picture book is just as adorable as the first. Freckleface Strawberry has to go to "Early Bird" at school when her parents have to be at work early. This all fine and dandy as long as the weather is fine and they get to play outside. However, when it is raining the Early Birds have to play Dodgeball in the gym. This could be fun if Windy Pants Patrick wasn't there. Wind Pants Patrick is big and fast and he throws the ball HARD!!!! Read the book to find out how this adorable little redhead deals with the Dodgeball Bully! Oh yeah, and the illustrations are wonderful!
