Overview


Zoe rules as Queen of the Universe -- or at least, her room! -- in this sweet, funny companion to ZOE GETS READY.

Zoe is the Queen of the whole Universe ... but her favorite place in the Universe is her own room, where she hosts tea parties, builds empires out of blocks, and gazes out upon the stars.

Then her parents announce that her little sister Addie is moving in to Zoe's room. Little sisters aren't good at tea parties (too rude), block-building (too clumsy), and starwatching (just plain too young!). So the Queen's new roommate is a royal pain . . . until Zoe discovers that even her smallest subjects can be useful in a storm!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for ZOE GETS READY

"The cartoon simplicity matches the light text and gentle humor, and sparkles on the cover accent the many outfits with great pizzazz. Add this one to the growing list of fun stories for young ladies with style." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“With layers of meaning, a spunky, fun-loving heroine, and clever use of the butterfly motif throughout, this one is a keeper.” – BOOKLIST

"Hard to resist." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

School Library Journal
PreS-K—In the second book about Zoe, "the queen" learns a lesson about sharing. The youngster loves her bedroom and especially loves bedtime as that's when she gets busy. She builds with her set of blocks, ventures into previously unexplored territory, and gazes out the window at her galaxy. Used to having her own space, she is understandably upset when told that her little sister, Addie, is old enough to leave their parents' room and will be moving in with her. Not clear about what sharing her room entails, Zoe continues her nighttime adventures but finds that Addie doesn't appreciate the disturbances and neither do their parents. It takes one stormy night to make Zoe realize that it is actually beneficial to share her bedroom and her royal title. Soft-hued pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations, beginning and ending with star-studded endpapers, charmingly depict the age-old dilemma of learning to compromise.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
Zoe (Zoe Gets Ready, 2012) has proclaimed herself queen of the universe, and her realm is her bedroom--where absolutely no sisters are allowed. Every night at bedtime, after her mom shuts the door, Queen Zoe sets out to explore her kingdom. She builds grand empires (wobbly towers of blocks), discovers uncharted lands (like the top of her bookcase) and carefully prepares morning tea for the court--her toy penguins, ranged round her on a blanket on the floor. But one day, her reign topples: Her parents tell her that she has to share her room with her little sister, Addie. They put her crib right on top of the royal table! How is she ever going to explore now? Queen Zoe pouts, with a gloomy frown and arms crossed in defiance. Every single noise wakes Addie up, and it looks like Zoe's nighttime fun must come to an end. However, a sudden crash of thunder makes Zoe realize just how much she likes having a roommate after all. Murguia's dark blue washes set the quiet night tone, and Zoe's abundant curiosity shines from the top of her crown to the bottom of her stretched tippy-toes. Transitioning into a shared room can be a tricky situation, especially with jealous sibling squabbles. But Zoe's flair will certainly help. (Picture book. 3-6)
