Glamourpuss has it all: style, charm, and even knows how to strike a pose. Glamourpuss loves being the center of attention; so when an unwelcome guest (a dog, no less!) steals the spotlight with some simple bow-wowing and undignified tail-wagging, Glamourpuss worries that she’s going to fall out of fashion. Glamourpuss worries there is room for only one superstar in this mansion—but then she makes a majestic move, finding friendship.
Why we like it: This cat versus dog tale is certain to get children talking about jealousy, friendship, and the difference between outside appearance and personality. The combination of glitter and this Caldecott Award-Winning illustrator ensure the book’s glamorous illustrations. Add the perky, funny text and you have the cat’s meow.
