Synopsis

Nobody's perfect. But Anna is the kind of girl who won't take no for an answer!  She has the perfect present for Betsy Bailey's birthday.  Now if only she could tie the perfect bow…  Come to think of it, Anna wants to do everything perfectly!  Her best friend Marley thinks trying to be perfect takes too long, and isn't much fun.  But when they meet a magician known as the Amazing M, Anna convinces him to cast a perfect spell, unleashing an afternoon of unexpected mayhem at Betsy's party, where Anna and her friends discover the pitfalls of perfection, learn how to value differences, and find the courage to try new things - even if that means making a mistake.
