Who am I? It's a question a lot of children seem to ask themselves, at which point being "them" simply isn't enough. They want to be someone better. Many kids want to change their names. This is what happened to Wilma Lee Wu. One day, Wilma decides she no longer likes her name, and she sets off for the Change Your Name Store to find a new one. Once at the store, the possibilities seem endless. Mrs. Zeena McFooz, the storekeeper, says that Wilma can try out any new name she wants with one catch: she must "go for a ride" to discover what it means to be that name. Will being Babette Bijou from France be better than Wilma Lee Wu? What about Dominga Delfino from Belize? Featuring an exciting story of discovery from author and humor blogger Leanne Shirtliffe (of the humor blog IronicMom), and fun, simple illustrations by Tina Kugler, "The Change Your Name Store" takes children on a journey to find their true identity and to celebrate who they are--name and all.
