Kylie Jean Drama Queen

Written by Marci Peschke and Illustrated by Tuesday Mourning


Kylie Jean's class is performing Alice in Wonderland! Kylie Jean knows she'd be just perfect as the Queen of Hearts. But mean girl Paula wants the part too . . . .







 

My Take:

Well, my favorite little pink lovin', hard workin', beauty queen aspirin' girl is back in Kylie Jean, Drama Queen.  Her last adventure was Kylie Jean, Rodeo Queen, where she learned the value of hard work and perseverance.  Her mama always tells her pretty is as pretty does, and this time around she's learned that lesson through learning to be nice to the new, mean girl in class.  I really love these Kylie Jean books, she's such a good example to little girls, she always works hard at her goals, and she always tries to be nice.  She doesn't always accomplish that last goal, but watching her learn and grow is the fun of the books.  Aside from learning to be nice to someone she doesn't like, she also learns how to handle the disappointment of not getting the part she wanted in the school play.  I've been there, and while as an adult it doesn't seem like a big deal, as a kid, it is devastating.  But Kylie Jean puts on a smile, and keeps on truckin'.  Of course, the ending of the book turns out picture perfect, but its a book for little girls, so it works just fine.  This is a series that I truly love and would recommend to just about any little girl.  I would say however, that the books might not appeal quite so much to the tomboy set, but Kylie Jean is so endearing, I think even they won't mind the pink overload in this book :) I whole heartedly rate this book, 1, Pay Full Price.

Tell me what you think!  Do you enjoy the Kylie Jean books?  Do they seem like something your little girl would enjoy?  I love the cover of this book, what do you think of it?  Hit the comments!

If Kylie Jean, Drama Queen was a movie, it would be rated G, appropriate for all audiences.

I read YA stuff, but this looks a little younger than what I generally read. It looks cute for that age group though!

Thanks for dropping by my site, I will be interested to see how you feel about These Dark Things! New follower :)

@Fireflywishes Kylie Jean is really a starter chapter book for little girls, awesome for the age group, but definitely not YA :)
