Clarissa’s world of make believe is a place where archeologists uncover magical birthday presents, tea is served to avoid talk show tragedies, Russian spies reveal their feelings in finger paintings, and stuffed animal bunny rabbits protect your darkest secrets. A coming of age story about the resilience of children and their ability to believe in fairy tales and ‘happily ever after’ in the face of real life.
