Each dreamy sequence alters when facing a daily task - a terrific way for children to address tasks in a humorous way. The book is a delight on every level - story and art...Antoinette Portis is a polished pro! Grady Harp, November 11
I especially liked the way Portis amplifies little Maggie's character as the book progresses and hits the reset button at the end. The animation and storyline were quite appealing and humorous to my five-year-old daughter, who loved animal/princess/superhero combination.
The pictures are cute and uncomplicated, much like the story. We especially liked how the story kept building on the original idea during pretend play. But I thought the words that went along with the illustrations was just ok. No catchy phrases, rhymes, or silliness. I was actually expecting a bit more from this book because of the cover quote by Maurice Sendak, and not having read a book by this author before I had very little to go on other than the cover image.
Unfortunately I have a feeling that this book will end up being read very little because whenever I ask her to bring me the books she wants to read this is not one that she picks up as a preference which is why I gave it 3 stars. An average book, which some may like more than others, but a story and character that more than likely will not become a favorite, nor will it be one that I recommend or gift to others.
p.s. She prefers the Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, The Complete Adventures of Curious George: 70th Anniversary Edition, Ruby's Cupcakes (Max and Ruby), and the Put Me in the Zoo (I can read it all by myself' Beginner Books)
The little girl in the story has a VERY creative imagination! I found it to be very entertaining and wondered from one page to the next what she would come up with. I can't wait to read it to my 3 year old granddaughter. She will love it. But, I can see her coming up with a need for a tail, a crown, magic wand, cat ears, and a cape. Oh the power of suggestion is oozing from every page of this book. I love that, though. Who doesn't want to inspire a young child to be imaginative and creative? Although I think I will be discouraging the drinking milk from a bowl!
This book is a very nice size at 9 1/2 x 9 1/2". The illustrations are large and very well done. There are not a lot of words on each individual page. The illustrations help portray the story while keeping the words to a minimum.
This is an excellent book! Very well done in every way.
Edit**** 12/29/11 *** My daughter would not read this book to her young daughter because of the activities of the little girl in the book. She didn't want to suggest that Princess Super Kitty's actions were acceptable. I guess I should have taken that into consideration before writing my review. I gave it 5 stars for imagination and creativity but am now changing it to 3 stars because of content. Never underestimate the mind of a toddler. They pick up on all things whether good or bad.
