Format: Paperback
Author Kathy Johnson describes herself as 'a fashion-savvy pageant mom and female version of Dr. Seuss:' she happens to be the mother of Miss Vermont 1999 and Miss Vermont USA 2001 AN she is an attorney. The ideas behind this her first book, colorfully illustrated by cartoonist Dick Kulpa, is to address tween and teen girls empowering them to make good choices. In this first edition she sets a standard for presentation that may need to be re-thought: the 8 1/2" X 11" format looks more like a term paper than a book, each page written in multiple colors of serif type for each 'paragraph and each page surrounded by garish stars and images of the featured girls at the bottom. It makes concentrating on the information printed akin to staring through a kaleidoscope, and this detracts for the messages of the story.

Her cast includes six 'starlettes' - Bekka, the smart on, Jinnie, an Eco-geek, Skylar, blonde and ditzy, Ashlee, obsessed with beauty of appearance, Lizzie, the vain one, and Sallee, the athletic one. Oh yes, and there is Punkin, Skylar's German Schnauzer. Imagine 6 Barbie dolls in different wigs and you have them. But as Johnson describes her creations, these girls are 'united by friendship, fashion, boys, and a strong sense of right and wrong, disdaining cliques and anyone who doesn't treat them and other nicely'. But these girls communicate in verse, starletteisms (word play), 'unique-speak' that defines each of the starlettes, and of course rhyme. The story i one of good against evil, good being the Starlettes universe and evil being Eva the Evil who disrupts life by morphing into werewolf/zombie/vampire/undead/whirling dervish and stirring up trouble with cruelty to animals.

By Sandra K. Stiles on October 2, 2012
Format: Paperback
This was a book that is hard to classify. Although it is written similar to a picture boook, the main characters are young teenage girls. This might be good for middle schoolers. The story is told through verse and puns. I loved that the author used vocabulary that was unique and more difficult. There are explanations of unfamiliar things at the bottom of the pages. I think the girls in my class will really enjoy this book.

Kathy Johnson's book is a great read for preteen to midteen age girls. It deals in part with a serious subject of mankind's relationship to animals and properly caring for them in a way that is positive and easy to understand. It also provides a good moral story which is entertaining and uplifting. I highly recommend the book to parents, grandparents and other adults who are looking for a book for young girls to read and enjoy.

I have just had the unique pleasure of reading STARLETTE UNIVERSE by Kathy Johnson. I had intended to evaluate it's suitability content prior to allowing my granddaughter to read it. As I scanned the pages, I became intrigued with both the style and subject matter of this book. I found it to be not only suitable but delightful and original for her young readers. Ms Johnson uses rhyme to draw her readers in while surprising them with unexpected humor. As a grandparent, I appreciate her moral approach to problem solving. I must say thank you for presenting this uplifting and entertaining option for us.......(My granddaughter wants to know when she can expect the Starlette's next book)
