Fashion Kitty!

I just read the latest in Cherise Mericle Harper's Fashion Kitty series, Fashion Kitty and the Unlikely Hero. Okay, I know what you're thinking - Fashion Kitty?! Sounds a little pretty princess, froofroo, right? Well, Fashion Kitty is the exact opposite! She's an independent minded kitty, with a mouse for a pet, and an eerie ability to hear when someone is having a fashion emergency. With her major empathy and flying skills, Fashion Kitty takes off the save the day by encouraging other kitties to dress the way they want, to try new styles and to not be a slave to fashion, but to your own creativity! This series also features fun, comic-style illustration with humor a grown up can get a kick out of.

In this installment, the principal (who is afraid of leaving her fashion comfort zone) enforces uniforms on her students. Fashion Kitty and her friends don't know what to do, especially when a kitty who wears flip flops with socks starts acting very strangely. Also included in the book are some pretty sweet paper dolls, but, as I had a library book, I refrained from defacing them.
