The Jelly That Wouldn't Wobble by Angela Mitchell is a unique, quirky story with wonderfully silly illustrations. Margo seemed to really connect with Princess Lolly, agreeing with her that the special jelly should definitely wobble. Her feelings wavered about the jelly when it voiced its discontent about the whole affair- this actually made her pretty nervous and she was impressed that no one in the royal court was scared. My mom was coaxed into presenting a big bowl of jiggly red Jell-O for desert the other night after having read this colorful story.
Will the special jelly wobble for Princess Lolly on her 89th birthday? Will Margo ever be able to eat red Jell-O again without cracking herself up and shouting, "WHY WON'T THIS JELLY WOBBLE?" (sometimes she belts it out in song : )
The DMS was lucky enough to interview Angela Mitchell. Be sure to check it out Friday, May 18th!

On a personal note, I love that Princess Lolly wears a pin that says, 'I Rule'. I have to get one of those!
