Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is twenty! In 1986, Lilly—award-winning author Kevin Henkes’s exuberant and beloved mouse character—finally got her first starring role with the publication of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. As USA Today proclaimed, “Lilly is one of the great female characters in literature—like Anna Karenina with whiskers or Scarlett O’Hara with paws.” A modern classic, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse has sold more than one million copies and was named to ten “best of the year” lists. This special twentieth anniversary edition features a letter from Kevin Henkes about Lilly printed inside the book, and a celebratory and sparkly foil jacket.
