Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the second book to feature Brownie and her kitty, Pearl, they’re getting dressed to the nines. Each page focuses on a different adornment Brownie and Pearl select: “Brownie finds feathers. Pearl finds pearls.... A little powder? Yes!”). The lipstick, though, is just “for Brownie.” She goes to town with the glitter, and when they step out, “everyone” (aka her parents) comments on how “dolled up” they are. Readers should, once again, enjoy being privy to Brownie and Pearl’s special world. Ages 3–5. (May)

Children's Literature - Chrystie Marino
In Brownie & Pearl Get Dolled Up, the reader is invited to join in every little girl's favorite pastime, playing dress up. Brownie and Pearl, her favorite playmate and tabby cat, decide to get dolled up to show Brownie's parents before bedtime. Brownie and Pearl get decked out in fancy clothes and jewelry, sparkly makeup that make their faces and hair shine like diamonds and even a bit of rosy spray. When they're all set to make their big debut, it's time to see if Brownie's parents think they are all dolled up as well. Of course they agree, even though Brownie and Pearl knew it all along. They go to bed with a smile on their faces knowing that they were so dolled up! Brownie & Pearl is an adorable read for any young girl who has a penchant for clomping around in a pair of big girl heels or trying out some of mom's lipstick. Brian Biggs' illustrations appear in a splash of feminine pinks and purples with vibrant textures that sparkle and shine right off the pages. It is one of the books in the ongoing "Brownie & Pearl" Series. Reviewer: Chrystie Marino
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—In this follow-up to Brownie & Pearl Step Out (S & S, 2009), Brownie, draped in a pink feather boa, applies pink lipstick, pink glitter, "rosy spray," and powder, and brushes her hair. Her cat gets a string of pearls around her furry neck and similar treatment. When they emerge from the bedroom, her parents exclaim, "You are so dolled up!" And "Brownie and Pearl know it." The simple text is set in big bold type and is perfect for beginning readers. Digitally rendered cartoon illustrations feature expressive close-ups of the "dolling up" routine and lots of pink—on fingernails, toes, bedding, and more.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
Kirkus Reviews
The second Brownie and Pearl outing (Brownie & Pearl Step Out, 2010) solidifies Brownie as a true girly-girl when she squeezes in a bit of dress-up fun before bedtime. Although she's already wearing her purple pajamas, she and her cat Pearl raid a dresser for a pink feather boa, pearls, face powder, lipstick ("For Brownie," reads the text-it'd be tough for a cat to pucker up) and perfume. Hair brushed, and shod in unmentioned, though obvious, grown-up-sized purple heels, Brownie and Pearl show themselves off to the adults, presumably Brownie's more conservatively clad parents. Artwork reveals only the bottom half of the adults' bodies on the verso page, firmly situating the attention on the little girl and her pet, who look mighty pleased with themselves as the parents announce, "You are so dolled up!" By book's end, they are cozied up in bed with the boa still around them and glitter dotting their faces. Biggs's digitally produced art matches the sweet sense of fun captured by Rylant's text, together creating a lovely, girly bedtime story. (Picture book/early reader. 3-6)
