Jasmine Toguchi, Flamingo Keeper

(3) 1-3 Jasmine Toguchi series. Illustrated by Elizabet Vuković. Japanese American Jasmine Toguchi, eight, receives a daruma (Japanese wishing doll) from her grandmother, which will grant her a wish if she works hard for it. Jasmine wishes for a pet flamingo. In her fourth adventure, energetic Jasmine remains an engaging heroine as she accepts her wish's impossibility and finds a creative solution. As always, Vuković's tidy spot illustrations capture Jasmine's lively spirit. Instructions for making a daruma doll are appended.
