The Flower Girl Wore Cel­ery is a hu­mor­ous story about Emma, who is asked to be a flower girl at her cousin Han­nah’s wed­ding. Emma looks for­ward to meet­ing the ring bearer, and most of all to meet­ing Han­nah’s groom, Alex, whom she can­not re­mem­ber. When the big day ar­rives, Emma is sur­prised that things are not as she ex­pected: Alex is an­other bride! Il­lus­tra­tions of Emma and her fam­ily sup­port the text show­ing the silly things Emma imag­ines. The tra­di­tions of a Jewish wed­ding add an­other layer of in­ter­est to the story.
