It's hard to believe, but Fashion Kitty is in danger, who is the villian?
Is it a jealous kitty?
Is it a boy kitty?
Is it an inventor kitty?
Is it a kitty full of trouble?
Yes Yes Yes And Yes
Sometimes even a superhero needs a helping paw.
Lucky for Fashion Kitty, she's not the only hero in town.
-quoted from Goodreads

Fashion Kitty to the rescue! When the school t-shirt fashion show idea brings out an "evil mastermind" set on stopping Fashion Kitty, will she be able to foil his plan before it's too late or get caught in his string filled trap?

This is the first book I've read in the Fashion Kitty series, and I can see why this series is so popular. Fashion Kitty is hard not to love. In this particular story Fashion Kitty aka Kiki Kittie has to foil the plan on grouchy kitty, Leon Lambaster III, who's out to capture Fashion super hero, Fashion Kitty. Luckily Kiki is a well grounded, smart cat who doesn't fall for Leon's tricks and with the help of her real friends is able to stop Leon before it's too late.

Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. (Ball of Yellow String) is illustrated in a way that will appeal to young readers, as the story reads part like a book and part like a comic strip. Each page offers fun illustrations that not only adds to the story's fun feeling, but it makes it an engaging read even for the most reluctant young readers. I love that the back of the book offers some really fun activities that readers can do with the help of an adult like making a pillow case out of old shirts, a banner out of old shirts and a few other really fun ideas.

If you're looking for a fun, entertaining read I'd recommend picking up the newest Fashion Kitty book!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
