Booklist - 12/15/2021 After Alice wins a wagonful of lollipops in the school raffle, she is faced with the difficult task of doling out the lollipops and determining who will receive one. Maynor’s humorous morality tale is accompanied by Player’s vibrant, rainbow-hued bubblegum-pop illustrations, with readers following Alice’s dilemma as she tries to remain fair but thoughtful and kind, as well. The vivid pictures have a Pixaresque quality, showcasing the range of emotions Alice’s classmates have as the debate rages on. When the kids discover that all along there were enough lollipops to go around, they realize they were better off sharing in the first place, instead of arguing about who was worthy. All’s well that ends well in this story, but young readers will learn to appreciate winning prizes—and more important, that it is fun to share them with friends. A unique story about decision-making and sharing that showcases the sweet and salty consequences of winning big. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
