A winning story that can't miss with little ones. Everybody--Father, Mother, older sister Molly--bosses Julia. (Baby Annabelle says "NO in a big loud voice," and that's just about the same as bossing.) And Julia is tired of it. She wants a turn at being in charge. Dressing up in Mom's clothes and wearing a special hat or sign proclaiming "Boss" doesn't change anything. It's Marbles the dog who gives Julia her chance to command--but Marbles makes the bossy little girl work pretty hard to earn the title. Morgan's crisp, lively, colorful illustrations capture the goings-on with charm and good humor. Children will easily recognize the family dynamics at the heart of the story. They'll also readily understand the importance Julia attaches to taking the lead--after all, what child of preschool or kindergarten age doesn't want to be boss at one time or another?
