Picture Book Saturday: Edie's Ensembles


 20691398




 Edie is known for her great outfits and stylish flair. She and her best friend Andrew spend a lot of time playing dress-up. The school hall is their runway. Edie loves the compliments and whispers of admiration, so much so that she begins dressing in increasingly outrageous outfits to get even more attention. No outfit is too bizarre, no costume too flamboyant for Edie.









Edie's Ensembles was cute. I really enjoyed the illustrations, but I'm not completely sold on the message. The book is aiming at expressing uniqueness and acceptance, but yet Edie goes a bit overboard. She's an attention hog that takes being different to a whole new level. In the end, she tones it down and finds her way back to her friend. But that bothered me. In the middle of her struggles, even her dearest friend abandoned her. I doubt that was the message intended, but it certainly made my mom feathers prickle.
