Gr 1-3–Two beginning chapter books. Girlie girls will flock to My Stylish Life, in which details of Kiki's day-to-day adventures are revealed in diary style, complete with doodles and black-and-white drawings. The child and her friends form a club to do crafts, bake, and have sleepovers. Readers can continue the adventures from Lotus Lane in the books about the other club members. Add this one if journal/diary-style books are popular. The second book is easier than the first, and has less text. Missy can't wait for picture day. Her outfit will have “belts that glitter, tights with stripes, and shoes that shine.” Full-color cartoons capture her fashion style with ruffles, bling, and even goggles. However, when the big day arrives, Missy's mom has another idea about her picture-day outfit. Pouty, angry, and sad, the child is sent off to school without “ruffles, rainbows, ribbons, or sparkles.” After a few arguments with her classmate Oscar over trading chocolate pudding for carrots at lunch, it's finally time for the picture, and what Missy and Oscar end up wearing will surprise children. Plenty of drawings assist readers with plot development between panels, spreads, brief narrative, and captions. Speech bubbles are scattered throughout to enhance character development. Fans of Junie B., Eloise, and Ivy and Bean will laugh out loud as they follow Missy's adventures.–Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2013.

"[Missy] adores ruffles, striped tights and lots of over-the-top accessories, a fascination that many young female readers will recognize and enjoy." -KIRKUS REVIEWS

This book is fun to read and I highly recommend it for young readers 5-7 and as a read-to for younger children. The illustrations are bright, colorful and totally enjoyable as they compliment the energetic thoughts and actions of Missy and bring this light, easy reader story to life. The book is filled with gentle, age-appropriate humor for young readers. Children will enjoy reading it themselves or having it read to them over and over. Missy fans also will enjoy the other books in the series. This book is a five-star super duper royal deluxe beginning for a very promising author/illustrator.
