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
