Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this spinoff of the Birdie picture books, the fashion-minded girl shows off a variety of outfits while playing dressup: “Dresses made Birdie feel like a fairy princess. She loved to curtsy and twirl. Sunglasses made her feel like a movie star.” Rim’s eclectic art style blends sleek watercolors with photo collage elements like pink lace, shiny jewels, and alligator print for a chic look suggestive of fashion design. Even readers who swoon over cat’s-eye glasses and kitten heels should be pleased at Birdie’s final transformation—turning a cartwheel and “just being me!” Up to age 3. (Apr.)
Kirkus Reviews
A young fashionista's play proves less inspired than her posh designs. Imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery for this daughter, as Birdie plays dress-up in her mother's stylish attire. She twirls in princess dresses, adopts a movie-star identity in sunglasses and teeters in stilettos. Her little white pooch, Monster, serves as a stylish sidekick, even posing as a hat-stand for one of her mama's beautiful, two-toned accessories. Birdie's fashion-conscious mother, never viewed face-on, showcases her sense of daring design with mile-high shoes and slim, crossed legs. Though the book seems initially to be a light trip into dressing-up, Birdie's childlike exuberance veers abruptly into contrived self-awareness. "But there's nothing better than just being me!" The stylish design features splashes of paint and tissue-paper ribbons; a cutout Birdie pops in her exaggerated high heels on the fashion-forward cover. Textured accents and varied patterns highlight the finest form of fashion. Without a consistent child's voice, this runway romp fizzles. (Board book. 2-3)
