FASHION KITTY

Age Range: 7 - 11

KIRKUS REVIEW

She’s a kitty, she’s a vegetarian with a pet mouse, she has her own sense of style, she’s . . . Fashion Kitty! Harper brings her comedic sense and flat, droll cartoons together in a graphic novel for young girls (“because many boys don’t give two hoots about fashion”). Lana and Kiki, two sisters, might look a lot like their literary cousin, Rotten Ralph, but they are not rotten at all. These kitty-girls live in the world of stripes, flowers and polka dots, but each has her own distinct style. Lana prefers her rebellious clothing style, complete with underwear on the outside and stockings used as scarves. Kiki revels in repeated patterns, cute bobbles and an eclectic style that everyone loves. During an accident on Kiki’s eighth birthday, fashion magazines fall on her head and she wakes, transformed into Fashion Kitty, with superpowers that allow her to help with fashion emergencies, even the ability to see a fashion faux pas in the making. A marvelous girly-girl response to the Captain Underpants books—with none of the embarrassing potty humor. (Fiction. 7-11)
