Eventually, Izzy realizes that getting hurt is part of life–and she isn’t going to let it get in the way of having fun!

About the Illustrator:
Little CA Nobens, the shortest kid in her kindergarten class, shot up like a weed in first grade. She didn’t know where her head or her knees or her elbows began or ended, until she was the tallest girl in eighth grade. She was always clonking her noggin or stubbing her toe or rapping her wrist or barking some bone on something. She could have used miles and miles of bubble wrap! Not having any, she just tried to stay still and draw pictures a lot.
