Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Kylie Jean lives in Jacksonville, TX, with her parents, brother, and pet bulldog named Ugly Brother. Ever since she was a "bitty baby," she has dreamed of becoming a beauty queen. As her mother perfects recipes for the Blueberry Festival competition, Kylie decides to enter the contest for pageant queen. She enlists the help of her cousin, and the two girls navigate the Internet without adults and print out an application form that includes the contest rules. The message of the book is very much focused on being pretty, like a princess or angel. In Drama Queen, Kylie Jean starts second grade and learns that the new girl, Paula DuPree, is mean, and that their class will be performing Alice in Wonderland. Kylie has her heart set on playing the Queen of Hearts, but when she learns that Paula has been cast in the role, she settles for being one of four Alices. Kylie Jean accepts her disappointment well, and she and Ugly Brother practice with gusto. When Paula comes down with chicken pox, Kylie Jean gets the part she dreamed of and takes cookies to Paula. The pink and gray illustrations throughout go well with these girly stories. These titles are a good length for early chapter-book readers and will appeal to those girls who like tiaras, ruffled skirts, and lots of pink, just like Kylie Jean.—Alison Donnelly, Collinsville Memorial Public Library, IL

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
Kylie Jean lives in Texas with her parents, her brother and her dog, Ugly Brother. She is beginning the second grade and cannot wait to begin a new school year. Pink is her favorite color so she has a pink backpack, and many pink accessories. Since she is determined to be a beauty queen, she wears a tiara to school. When Kylie Jean arrives at school, she encounters the new girl, Miss Paula Dupree, who seems determined to cross Kylie at every turn. Paula makes fun of Kylie Jean's note in her lunch and her tiara. When Ms. Coazon announces that the class is going to perform the play, "Alice in Wonderland," Kylie Jean knows she is perfect for the Red Queen as the queen gets to wear a crown. Kylie Jean's memorization is so good that she gets the part of Alice, much to Kylie Jean's disappointment. Paula gets the part of the Red Queen until Paula catches the chicken pox. Kylie Jean decides to keep trying to be Paula's friend in spite of Paula's mean attitude. In a delightful story for second graders and even some third graders, Kylie Jean shows how you can have good manners and still appear regal. The short chapters and occasional illustrations work very well for those who have moved beyond "I Can Read" books but may not be quite ready for a lengthy chapter book. The story, pink cover and glittery letters probably attract more girls than boys even though Kylie Jean could appeal to anyone. Beginning chapter book readers can look forward to other adventures with Kylie Jean as well as go to an accompanying website. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk

    more from this reviewer

    A terrific gift for girls under 10!!

    This was adorable! Zany wanted to read it every night until it was finished - even though we have a one chapter a night rule we were done in just a couple of days.

    I loved that though Kylie Jean's character wants to be a beauty queen a main focus of the book is how she can have a beautiful character, as well. It gave us several lessons and helped through an evening after some children had hurt my girl's feelings.
