About this book

Telford is asked by the Mayor to invent a word for a very important speech. Earnest, on his way to deliver the letter, loses it. Never one to admit he is wrong, Earnest schemes to get out of the situation. Unfortunately, he is caught... or is he? ( Fun fact: "It Could Have Been a Rose" was the first of the Earnest and Telford books written, although it was published second. The opening illustration is an idealized view of Main Street, Sharon, Connecticut, where the illustrator and writer live.)
