“Don’t get into Mommy’s purse,” Kelly said out loud, remembering Mommy’s words.

But Kelly can’t resist—and what starts out as a quick peek soon becomes an unforgettable adventure!

Kelly Finds a Way is the beautifully illustrated story of a little girl who loves to explore Mommy’s closet, playing dress-up with the fancy clothes and high heel shoes she finds there. But she knows Mommy’s purse is off limits—until one day when she takes a look inside only to find herself tumbling down into the purse itself!

Finding herself among Mommy’s things, Kelly at first enjoys exploring this strange and exciting place. But soon, she feels she would like to return to her own world. Can Kelly find a way out—and back into Mommy’s arms?
