Fiona likes to take her time. In fact, she takes so much time that her toes wrinkle in the tub and her dog falls asleep waiting to be fed. When she misses the bus one time too many, Fiona’s mom sends her to Speed School. Fiona learns to move so fast her head starts to spin. One day, while eating doughnuts, listening to music, painting a picture, and dribbling a basketball all at the same time, Fiona’s head spins so fast it gets stuck. Backward! There’s only one way to get life back to Fiona’s favorite pace—she must show her family that “slow doesn’t stink.”
