Bessie Lee is tired of being the TEENIEST girl in her first-grade class. She’s too teeny to reach the big-kid swings. Too teeny to play with her older sister. Too teeny to go on the best rides at Disney World!
Still, that doesn’t stop Bessie from having BIG dreams. And one of those is winning the school talent show! After Bessie wins, no one will tell her she’s too teeny anymore.
Bessie’s plan is to dazzle the crowd with magic. Just like her favorite magician, Harry Houdini! But when some of Bessie’s classmates don’t believe she’s a real magician, Bessie performs a trick to impress them.
Abracadabra-poof and—oh no! Bessie made Rufus, the class hamster, disappear! And she doesn’t know how to undo it! Will Bessie find a way to bring him back? Or is Rufus truly lost forever?
