A Style All Her Own

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Isabelle Ashley Parker McBride has a style all her own. She wears special outfits for every event, from going to the dentist to having tea, and everyone admires her unique sense of style. Everything is perfect, until her cousin Dora asks her to be a flower girl in her wedding. Isabelle Ashley is thrilled – but then she sees the plain, pink dress she is supposed to wear. It’s boring and looks exactly the same as everyone else’s. How could a girl with such style possibly be seen in such a drab dress?

The Horn Book Guide

“they’ll surely enjoy Watts’s extravagant images of the style-obsessed mini-diva.”
The Horn Book Guide

School Library Journal

“Watts splashes the pages with predominately pink watercolor-and-ink cartoon sketches that are reminiscent of the 1960s to show Isabelle’s flare for fashion to a tee. A fun bit of fluff for fashion-focused girls.”
School Library Journal
