Lucy is so excited about her birthday party that she talks about it all the time. Cousin Alice finds this irritating and tells Lucy she is bossy. Lucy is so cross at this that she refuses to let Alice come to her party even though Alice has always been her best friend. It takes a long time for Lucy to come round to saying sorry, but when she does Alice apologises too, and all is well. Excellent water colour illustrations, showing a supportive family easing Lucy through this crisis. Lucy's family is mixed race while Alice's family is white.
