Lilly's class learns about a carnival in the Bahamas and plans their own version called the Hullabaloo. The much-teased Kendell brings Caribbean music from a mystery friend, who no one is sure really exists. The class works secretly on their costumes, as well as together, to make the event a success. During the parade, Lilly tries to recognize her classmates and is left wondering if Kendall's friend is real and snuck in, disguised.

BRENDA BELLINGHAM was born in Liverpool, England and now lives in Sherwood Park, Alberta. A mother and former school teacher, she rediscovered writing in her late forties and went on to become a president, and Program Director for the Canadian Author's Association, Edmonton Branch. She has also taught evening classes in writing for children. Her numerous children's books include Storm Child, a Canadian Children's Centre Our Choice selection, and several titles in the Lilly series including Lilly's Clever Puppy, Lilly's Good Deed, and Lilly's Special Gift, which are also Canadian Children's Centre Our Choice selections.
CLARKE MACDONALD is an illustrator and graphic designer in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
