Evelyn is both aghast and fascinated when a new boy comes to grade five and tells everyone his name is Queen. Queen wears shiny gym shorts and wants to organize a chess/environment club. Evelyn is an only child with a strict routine and an even stricter mother. When it turns out that they take the same route home from school, Evelyn and Queen become friends. A visit to Queen’s house opens Evelyn’s eyes to a whole new world. And when it comes time for her to take something to school for Hype and Share, Evelyn suddenly looks at her chosen offering --- her mother’s antique cream jug --- and sees new and marvelous possibilities.
