W hat H appened W hen I T ried to G et W hat I W anted written and illustrated by Cassie Fredendall
After watching each of his three sisters get what they want from their dad, one young boy decides to try it for himself. But his attempt to be charming and sweet instead turns into a disaster. This amusing story will make all who read it remember exactly why it is that girls can always get what they want.
Cassie Fredendall, currently a student at the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas, grew up in Port Huron, Michigan with her parents, brother and two sisters.

“ Daaaddy,” the youngest one says in her sweetest voice, “Can I go to work with you tomorrow? I promise I won’t touch the copy machine unless you say so.” She bats her eyes and pinches her cheeks and smiles real pretty.
So one day I decide to try. “ Da-a-a-d-dy,” I say in my sweetest voice (which is more squeaky than sweet), “Can I have another cookie and can I stay up late and watch TV and can I go to work with you tomorrow and play with the phones and sit at your desk and watch you use all your tools?” I bat my eyes (which is kind of awkward) and pinch my cheeks (which kind of hurts) and smile my prettiest smile (which is not very pretty).
