Eleven diminutive stories in which the heroine hands in a breakfast chart of eel and toadstool stew and similar delicacies because her real breakfast is too monotonous to present to the teacher, makes a Christmas present for a department store Santa, indulges the neighbor's small twins in their make-believe identities as Me-Me and Moo-Moo from Pluto, says ""zunk, zunk, zunk"" when annoyed, and participates in other everyday activities designed to reveal an engaging character to fond advantage. But flawless Angie has none of the imagination or the appealing wickedness of Glenda (1969), and each happening that befalls her is over before any real story gets started.
