A very cute fashionista spin on the classic nursery rhymes.
Nia C. White
Maybe not because they are inappropriate but because a child just wouldn't understand.
Brynnlux
A perfect gift for my fashion-forward friends who are having babies.

I received this book as a gift when my third child was born.

It is spectacular and wonderfully witty. My personal belief is that the reviews that cite it as mediocre and such are missing the point - this is a book that is fun for mom *and* fun for the kiddies.

You won't find duckies and bunnies here - but you will find a wonderful play on nursery classics that appeals to the fashion-loving mom and her hip kiddos.

And yes, the author is British. Therefore some of the references are British - makes perfect sense to me. That added a welcome level of complexity to the discussion with my 4 year old about how certain words in the same language might be used differently in different places.

I love this book - and I know many adults sans kiddos who would love it as well.

I gave this book as part of a baby shower present and it was a hit! Granted the mom-to-be is a brand name shopoholic, but besides that, the book is very pretty and I like the delicate watercolor/ink illustrations.
The thing I really like about this book is that there is a section at the end of the book that has all of the original nursery rhymes also.

Gorgeous illustrations. Witty little fashionista takes on traditional nursery rhymes. Too short and not something i'd recommend to be read to children, but gorgeous for the fashion lover at heart.

Cute for the fashion aware mom. Entertaining to the adult not so much the kids.

This is a really cute book that makes a great gift for new mommies. I've bought it for 4 friends so far and they have all loved it. It will give them a good laugh and is even cute to have out on the coffee table as a conversation piece.

This is amusing to a point, and not really geared for baby. It's references are British, not American, so the stores other than Prada, Gucci, etc are in London. Better for Mommy than for Baby.
