More About the Author

Here are some things I have learned:

Using comics can be a fun way to tell a story.
Revising is surprisingly satisfying, but not always easy.
Some things are fun to look at, but not fun to own.
Listening is important.
Everyone has a story.
Inspiration can be fast and fleeting.
Writing is like lego - one word(brick) at a time.
Sometimes just a little good thing can change a whole day.

Hope you have a great day!!

Format: Paperback
Fashion Kitty to the rescue! When the school t-shirt fashion show idea brings out an "evil mastermind" set on stopping Fashion Kitty, will she be able to foil his plan before it's too late or get caught in his string filled trap?

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!

My daughter has absolutely adored the first three Fashion Kitty books, But this one has been a disappointment. We could tell the moment she opened the book that it was different. The cute graphic drawings are gone for the most part, replaced with mostly text and a few comic book-type illustrations. We had to double-check to make sure this was by the same author as the first three. My daughter said the story isn't as good either - but I think she mostly misses the fun artwork. If there is a 5th Fashion Kitty book, let's hope there is a return to what made the books so enjoyable in the first place.

Format: Paperback
The premise of this book is very cute. An average little kitty named Kiki develops the superpower of "fashion" and sails around helping people with their appearance needs (an amusing spoof of superhero clichés.) A boy at school decides he hates her and forms a club to expose her identity. With help from her friends, Fashion Kitty survives this young villain's ineffective plot, and emerges victorious. The book is reinforced by numerous charming illustrations that help tell the story, comic-book style. The storyline will appeal strongly to little girls, although the simple narrative is a bit insubstantial for older readers.
