The Barnes & Noble Review
Entertainment icon Madonna zooms once again to the top of the charts, this time breaking new personal ground with her first of five children's books that's showstoppingly cool. A modern-day Cinderella tale for kids ("even grown-up ones"), Madonna's Brit-flavored picture book is a cleverly told story about four English friends -- Nicole, Amy, Charlotte, and Grace -- who spend all their time together reading books, liking boys, and dancing. The only trouble with their friendship's bliss, however, is their mutual jealousy and disgust toward another local girl, Binah, who gets lots of attention with her "long, silky hair and skin like milk and honey," a knack for good grades and sports, and her kind attitude. But a sleepover at Nicole's brings all-too-real fairy godmother dreams, and after the four "English roses" secretly spy a motherless Binah in a less-than-fun home life, they promise to "be kinder to Binah and stop complaining about their own lives." Madonna hits a high note with her straightforward, sometimes sassy text that's still gently smooth and challenging, giving kids a welcome reminder to count their blessings and be compassionate to others. Fashion illustrator Jeffrey Fulvimari creates his own command performance, too, making Madonna's words pop with strikingly detailed watercolors that mix heavy black lines and candy-colored tones to give the book its London-hip, multi-patterned groove. With proceeds from the book being donated to a children's charity, Madonna's foray into writing for younger audiences is a "ray of light" that's more than just a flash in the pan. Matt Warner

Este libro es fenomeno! Que talento tiene Madonna. El libro no solamente es bien interesante para los ninos, pero tambien ensena una leccion bien importante en la vida. Creo que este y el otro libro de Madonna llegaran a ser clasicos del mundo literatario de ninos en los anos que vienen.
