    Does anyone remember a book they may have read as a little girl (in the 80s) about a girl who...

    was a bid pudgy and she had a messy room, and had a ballet recital and her family took her out to dinner afterwards? I can't for the life of me remember anything but the illustrations in my head. I know this is a vague description but if I could just narrow it down. Thank you for any leads!

    is this a children's book?
    or like a young adult book? such as a Judy Bloom book...

    This is a young child's book. All I can remember are the illustrations in my head about her messy room, her tutu for her ballet recital and going out for either dinner or ice cream afterwards.  I have a daughter now, and I'd love to share the book with her as it meant a lot to me as an awkward child. Thank you for any leads!

    It was my favorite book! I still have a cover-less copy of it from my childhood. It was called Messy and was written and illustrated by Barbara Bottner.
