In this second volume of the series, Pauline is raving about a new toy robot that has become a craze among her classmates. But the girl will
soon realize that human relations are more important than useless objects.
The Zipoclic, a brand new toy is making waves in the schoolyard and
sending children into a frenzy. Pauline is spellbound by this new sensation
and insists that her parents buy her the popular toy. However, they remain
firm and don’t get swept up in all the hype. But when Pauline gets her first pair of glasses, she is tempted to trade them for her object of desire. Can Pauline distinguish what she wants from what she needs?
