Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Two beginning chapter books. Girlie girls will flock to My Stylish Life, in which details of Kiki's day-to-day adventures are revealed in diary style, complete with doodles and black-and-white drawings. The child and her friends form a club to do crafts, bake, and have sleepovers. Readers can continue the adventures from Lotus Lane in the books about the other club members. Add this one if journal/diary-style books are popular. The second book is easier than the first, and has less text. Missy can't wait for picture day. Her outfit will have "belts that glitter, tights with stripes, and shoes that shine." Full-color cartoons capture her fashion style with ruffles, bling, and even goggles. However, when the big day arrives, Missy's mom has another idea about her picture-day outfit. Pouty, angry, and sad, the child is sent off to school without "ruffles, rainbows, ribbons, or sparkles." After a few arguments with her classmate Oscar over trading chocolate pudding for carrots at lunch, it's finally time for the picture, and what Missy and Oscar end up wearing will surprise children. Plenty of drawings assist readers with plot development between panels, spreads, brief narrative, and captions. Speech bubbles are scattered throughout to enhance character development. Fans of Junie B., Eloise, and Ivy and Bean will laugh out loud as they follow Missy's adventures.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI
From the Publisher

Praise for MISSY'S SUPER DUPER ROYAL DELUXE #1: PICTURE DAY
"[Missy] adores ruffles, striped tights and lots of over-the-top accessories, a fascination that many young female readers will recognize and enjoy." -KIRKUS REVIEWS
Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
Melissa Abigail Rose, also known as Missy, has an unusual way of getting dressed in the morning: she jumps rope as she dresses. On picture day at school, Missy plans to dress up in a royal, deluxe way. Days before the big event, she thinks about what she is going to wear. On the morning of picture day, she tries on many different accessories and outfits. Her final outfit includes so many things that her mother decides Missy needs help. With her mother's selection for her picture, Missy feels all her color fades. Missy's mood gets assistance from the pages becoming black-and-white. Missy seeks some solace from Oscar, the class brain who does not talk very much. Missy tries to get Oscar to share in her dark mood, and his chocolate pudding, during lunch. When the picture taking begins, Missy must wait with Oscar for her picture. Oscar decides to come up with a plan which pleases Missy. Oscar spies the "suspenders" that Missy has on; his idea of trading his vest and bow tie for her "suspenders" makes for a better picture for both students. Beginning readers, especially girls, can enjoy this beginning chapter book. The first book in the series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk

    I think this is a must read for any 5 to 7 year old! The illustrations are enchanting and Missy is such fun. I admire her spunk and her problem solving. She's not going to let anybody get her down!

    Oscar is adorable and I love their interaction.

    So far, I am enjoying this new line of early reader chapter book

    So far, I am enjoying this new line of early reader chapter books from Scholastic. I love the simple, clean writing and the full color illustrations on every page. The illustration in Picture Day are adorable. They will appeal to little girls with imagination.

    I gave this particular book 3 stars. While the writing was clean and illustrations inviting, the story itself didn't hold my children's interest.

    Review: Missy's Super Duper Royal Deluxe #1: Picture Day

    Missy's Super Duper Royal Deluxe #1: Picture Day (A Branches Book)by Susan Nees is a cute story for little girls.

    It is about Melissa Abigail Rose and her VERY individual style and how she plans for picture day at school only to be thwarted by her mother and saved by her new friend Oscar.

    My 4 year old daughter got a little bored with the story but it may be just a bit beyond her attention span capabilities. She stayed with me till the end despite the fidgeting.

    I'm having a hard time feeling useful in my children's books reviews. Either she likes it or LOVES it.

    I thought Missy was a little difficult and a little rude but Oscar was quiet and kind and helpful.
