It's time for a change -- of clothes!

Daffodil had two sisters,
and they all three looked alike.
People couldn't tell them apart.

When Daffodil and her sisters go to parties, Mommy puts them in fancy dresses of different colors so that people will know "who is who, and which is which." Violet's dress is violet, with lots of lace. Rose's dress is pink, with little bows all over. Lucky ducks. Poor Daffodil's dress is a horrible yellow, with weird fake pearls. She hates it "very extremely hugely much." One day Daffodil finally has enough - and when she rebels, she learns something surprising from her sisters.

This funny story about individuality is given a lively twist by Tomek Bogacki's colorful illustrations.
