Brownie and Pearl Get Dolled Up: 12/09/10
Cynthia Rylant has close to two hundred published children's books. We "discovered" her by way of the Backyardigans and have since then been checking out her books as we see them at the library.
Rylant has a new series of books staring Brownie and her cat, Pearl. Eight picture books are planned and a couple of them were released this year. Brownie and Pearl Get Dolled Up is the second of the series.
Brownie decides to play dress up with her cat. Dressing up includes lots of sparkles and other outlandishness. For me the book was ok. Dress up never was my thing as a child and there's no way I'd ever try to dress up a cat. But Harriet adored the book. We read it together about five times and I think she read it to herself at least another five.
