In this engaging story, you’ll meet the character, Beatrice Bottomwell, who has never made a mistake! She does everything carefully and perfectly, especially each year at the talent show. However this year, as Beatrice performs her act with her hamster, Humbert, she makes her first mistake. She threw her salt shaker in the air only to realize it had pepper inside! The pepper made Humbert sneeze which caused a big mess of Beatrice’s act. Everyone was shocked but Beatrice could not stop laughing! As a result, the audience did too.
