Per­fec­tion­ists, wor­ry­warts, and stick­lers ev­ery­where will sym­pa­thize with Loppy as he tries his best but then de­spairs when things don’t turn out just so. Luck­ily, a friend is there with some valu­able ad­vice about fail­ure, suc­cess, and mak­ing mis­takes along the way. Cap­ti­vat­ing black-and-white sketches with splashes of vivid color por­tray a riot of pur­ple vines, re­mind­ing Loppy to stop and smell the flow­ers and per­haps learn a thing or two from them as well.
