The Big Red Lollipop talks about a birthday party that the older sister gets invited to. However, she has to take her little sister with her and she embarrasses her at the party. She doesn't get invited for a long time, because of it. Plus, she eats her lollipop that she took care of, while her little sister ate hers as quick as possible.
