Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7–On her birthday, as Kiki Kittie is making her wish, a pile of fashion magazines tumble on her head and voila! Fashion Kitty is born. As such, she helps other kittens with their wardrobe dilemmas and with their interactions with their peers. The story, though seemingly simplistic, touches upon a variety of themes including bullying, self-esteem, and family relationships. Fashion Kitty is a sassy, smart animal who, though concerned with haute couture, still has substance. Primarily illustrated through a variety of pinks and grays in a cartoon style, the pictures are artistically appealing and visually spectacular. The book should have wide appeal to upper elementary and middle school girls. It can be read aloud due to the enlarged panels (one to four on a page) and is an exceptionally fun and lively choice.–Jennifer Feigelman, Plattekill Public Library, Modena, NY

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!!

Charise

I must admit I felt trepidation about getting this book. My daughter is much younger than the intended audience. But. We love kid's graphic novels. And my kid has a strong sense of style. And we love funny stories. So, I got the book. And...we loved it!

Through a series of odd and unfortunate (and very amusing) events, fashion-forward nice girl Kiki kitty becomes superhero Fashion Kitty. With her new-found skills, she zones in on a girl who's about to make a "fashion faux pas": listening to the purposefully bad dressing suggestions of a popular cat in school. But Fashion Kitty shows the other kitty how to mix-and-match, and teaches the mean kitty a lesson she won't soon forget. All in day's work.

Others have pointed out this is a great choice for the reluctant reader, but it is also a good choice for someone stretching up into higher realms of reading. Aided by the charming drawings, the story goes by so quickly. And the message is great. Yes, there's sibling rivalry. And undeserved teasing. And a slave to the fashion magazines. But there's also a loving, supportive family. And a main character who knows right from wrong, fashion-wise and moral-wise. I loved how the story was about using clothes as an expression of your personality, not following some trend-based craze. When there are so many iffy messages out there for young girls, this deliciously quirky tale is a pure treat: it gives them what they want without exposing them to what you don't want.

Format: Paperback
Take a trip back in time with me to the halcyon days of 2005. A time when graphic novels for children were hardly as commonplace as they are today. Ah '05. Whatta year. I remember it well. At the time, I was searching in vain for above par graphic novels for kids to add to my very short list of library-worthy titles. There really wasn't much out there, but one name kept coming up over and over again. Something called "Fashion Kitty". Being the kind of girl that I am, I took one look at the book's sparkly cover, preference for all things pink, and use of the word "fashion" in the title, and promptly never thought of the book again. Until now. Recently my library purchased a large swath of graphic novels for young `uns and there, perched cheerily at the top of the pile, was Charise Mericle Harper's creation. I circled it warily and thought it might be safe to just flip through idly and call it a day. Flipping, however, began and ended on page three where I read the following line: "The FIRST reason the Kittie family is unusual is that a cat having a mouse for a pet is similar to a human having a chocolate cake for a pet." This sentence is immediately followed by the image of a boy leading a pink frosting-laden chocolate cake by a leash as he murmurs to it, "I love you, but I wish I could eat you!" I was hooked. I showed the book to my least graphic-novel-lovin' colleague. She was hooked. Even if you are no fan of fashion, kitties, or even comics in general, "Fashion Kitty", has the power to win over even the toughest of critics. Is it girly? Or lordy, yes. Is it fun? You bet your sweet bippy.

Right off the bat there are three things you need to know about the Kittie family. First of all, they own a pet mouse.

I checked out this book from the library, and my 10 year old son and I read it before my 8 year old daughter (the intended audience) got her hands on it. All 3 of us enjoyed it. Before she got finished with it, my daughter was asking if there were more of them. We will be waiting anxiously for a new one. I'd recommend it for any reader who gets bogged down with chapter books, but even chapter book readers will enjoy it. I compare it to our son's delight with the Captain Underpants graphic novels. Easy to read and funny!

I purchased this book for my 8 year old daughter. Getting her to read can sometimes be a chore so I was thrilled when I showed her this book and she could not put it down. It's funny for children and adults. She was chuckling to herself as she read. It's great because the language is not too easy but there are pictures to break things up for her. One of the biggest adjustments for emergent readers is the lack of pictures and getting used to that concept. I wish there were more of these books to buy and can't wait for another installment.

I am a fourth grade teacher. My students love these books! They are great for kids who think they don't like to read. I have had more students learn to love reading with Fashion Kitty and Jeff Smith's Bone series.

My 5 year old is on her third time through this book. She has enjoyed looking at the pictures on her own and having the book read to her twice while she helps with some of the smaller words. It has been a great way to get her involved in reading. She can't wait for the next Fashion Kitty book to come out!

My 7 year old niece consumed this book. She read it from the moment that she opened it until she went to bed. We'll be getting the rest of the series.

My daughter is an avid reader, she has read her Baby Mouse books over and over again. She is into graphic novels, and was very excited when she saw the book.They story could have been better. But then again, I should have known, the title is "Fashion Kitty". The cat helps someone who is about to commit a fashion faux pas. My daughter (a first grader), thought it was cute. I myself, prefer Baby Mouse, and have yet to find books that match the Baby Mouse series. My daughter would like the other Fashion Kitty books, but luckily, they are too expensive for me to buy on amazon.
