This is the first book I've read in the Fashion Kitty series, and I can see why this series is so popular. Fashion Kitty is hard not to love. In this particular story Fashion Kitty aka Kiki Kittie has to foil the plan on grouchy kitty, Leon Lambaster III, who's out to capture Fashion super hero, Fashion Kitty. Luckily Kiki is a well grounded, smart cat who doesn't fall for Leon's tricks and with the help of her real friends is able to stop Leon before it's too late.
Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. (Ball of Yellow String) is illustrated in a way that will appeal to young readers, as the story reads part like a book and part like a comic strip. Each page offers fun illustrations that not only adds to the story's fun feeling, but it makes it an engaging read even for the most reluctant young readers. I love that the back of the book offers some really fun activities that readers can do with the help of an adult like making a pillow case out of old shirts, a banner out of old shirts and a few other really fun ideas.
If you're looking for a fun, entertaining read I'd recommend picking up the newest Fashion Kitty book!
Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is Fashion Kitty's fourth adventure, but it is my first experience with the fashion forward cat whose family has two secrets: (1) they have a pet mouse and (2) Kiki Kittie is now a superhero called Fashion Kitty.
Although the content is necessarily different, this book follows the tradition of Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid books (and even Brian Selznick and other books that I'm not as familiar with) in combining a written story with illustrated segments interspersed throughout the text.
The really nice thing about this book, being part of an established series, is that Harper does a good job bringing readers up to speed quickly. It was easy to read this book as a standalone without the earlier installments.
Apparently the earlier books in the series were more traditional graphic novels and some readers miss that format. I can't comment on that since I haven't read the other books, but I liked the text/image format. This could also be a good stepping stone to more text-based books for readers who are growing with the series, but it's really a matter of personal preference.
Harper's writing is clever with a bit of fairy tale quality--it's easy to imagine sitting around a story hour being told this story by the author instead of reading it as a book.
I like the emphasis on helping friends here and the illustrations are a lot of fun. Really, the whole premise is fun--a cat who is a superhero and helps cats with fashion emergencies? What's not to love?Read more ›
We started reading the book on the train ride home. I had to stop reading for a few moments and noticed that she was trying to sound out words and read ahead on her own. She ended up reading the next frame to me when I was able to get back to reading to her.
My daughter's class in school is learning to read, and she hasn't enjoyed the experience very much. This book is so appealing that it might make her really excited to start reading on her own. The graphic elements are accessible to someone just learning to read. The story is witty, the tone positive, and the pictures are adorable, but not "too cute".
We all *love* the book. I'll definitely have to get them all... for, um, my daughter, of course. ;)
