Agapanthus Hum and the Eyeglasses

1999, 2001 Puffin edition
Joy Cowley
Illustrated by Jennifer Plecas
Agapanthus Hum and the Eyeglasses
Original and/or purchase price unknown
Slightly worn paperback

This is cute if slight, even by beginning-reader standards.  The improbably named Agapanthus wears glasses but wants to be an acrobat.  With the support of her (yes, her) "good little Mommy," "good little Daddy," and a "beautiful lady" acrobat, she resolves this dilemma.  Plecas's illustrations are equally cute yet simple.
