Dessert Schneider takes her teachers words of wisdom to heart. She does things her way, marching to the beat of her own drum. However, this can lead to mischief sometimes. Especially when faced with the scrumptious temptation of Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. Dessert tries to cover-up her mistake and only succeeds in making matters worse. She needs to come up with a plan to apologize to her parents as well as a way to participate in her school's fundraiser without causing more trouble.

Adorable black and white illustrations and a fun little story make for an entertaining tale. Learn the consequences of disobedience along with Dessert as well as some great ways to make amends.
