Summary:

Emma is excited for her worm family to have their portrait taken. But when she sees her other friends' portraits, she gets discouraged. We had the most beautiful smiles, Ellie the Chipmunk squeals. Abigail the Cat meows, I looked gorgeous with my big poufy hair. The worm family doesn't have teeth...how will they show their beautiful smiles? They don't have hair either...how can it look big and poufy?! So Emma gathers wigs, giant fake teeth, and colorful clothing for her parents and sisters. But it's only after taking off their costumes that the worm family is able to wriggle and squiggle and squeeze into a delightful pose that only a worm family can make. And Emma? She thinks it's perfectly perfect. -- Provided by publisher.
