Meet Wilma Lee Wu, a spirited girl whose quest for a new name takes her around the world. 

Largely ignored by her slacker parents and constantly annoyed by her brother, Wilma Lee Wu marches to the Change Your Name Store where she meets Zeena McFouz, the outrageous owner. Soon Zeena helps Wilma try on new names. Each time Wilma selects one, she is transported to the country from which the name originates. Will Wilma find a new name that she likes? Will she discover her real identity and where she truly belongs?

Told in playful rhyme and filled with delightful illustrations, The Change Your Name Store is destined to become a read-aloud favorite.
