Birdie's Back!

Sujean Rim is one of my favorite illustrators. She is well-known for her super-fashionista-fabulous illustrations for the Daily Candy website.

She also wrote and illustrated BIRDIE'S BIG GIRL SHOES, and in that book, Birdie, a budding fashionista, gets to have a blast in her mom's rah-ther impressive shoe closet.

In her newest book, BIRDIE'S BIG GIRL DRESS, Birdie faces a dilemma that I know all too well--pulling her favorite dress from her closet only to find that it no longer fits (okay--Birdie's dress doesn't fit because she's a little girl and growing, my clothes don't fit because of a little too much goat cheese and crostini).

What in the world will Birdie wear to her own birthday party??

Well, Birdie solves her problem with creativity and panache and a trip to the attic.

I can look at this book a hundred times and never get tired of it. The illustrations are so effortlessly chic--just like true style should be--I really, really want to jump inside this book. And maybe play dress-up with Birdie. My daughter and I absolutely love this one!
