Millie is a girl who's just a little bit odd. She's very independent, very resourceful — and very rich. Her parents have pots of money and Millie could have all the stuff she wants, but she's really not that interested: Millie wants to walk lightly through the world. The other girls at school think she's hopelessly weird, but when catastrophe strikes, they find that Millie's “weirdness” is exactly what is needed. Millie's spunkiness, inner strength, and ability to cope with difficult situations make her a positive role model for all young readers. The book's unusual layout, novel use of fonts, and fabulous illustrations complement the encouraging message.
