Two sisters, two versions of events involving a birthday party invitation, an older sister trying to navigate two different cultures, a mother who misunderstands local culture, a bratty little sister, greed and temptation and a BIG RED LOLLIPOP!

This is a nuanced and layered story that explores themes of 'turning the other cheek', forgiveness, and cultural clashes. Highly suitable for primary grade classes!
