Petunia the Perfectionist
Petunia the Perfectionist

Petunia does not like to make mistakes. In fact, she’ll do just about anything to avoid making one. So instead of enjoying her jam sessions on her guitar, Petunia practices ‘til her fingers ache. And rather than creating art with her crayons, she spends her time color-coding them instead. 

Petunia’s so busy trying to be perfect, there’s no time left in her life for being creative or having any fun! 

Though Petunia’s mom often reminds her that mistakes are important because they help us learn and grow, Petunia's not convinced. That is until she makes a mistake that inspires everyone...even herself. 

Will Petunia finally understand that it’s okay to make mistakes, and begin to accept herself for who she is – imperfections and all?
