Read full description of the books:
First, let me just say I decided to try this book to see if it would be as dreadful as I'd feared. Also, I've always really liked the cover illustration! I had low-low-low expectations of Madonna's story and I admit they were not completely fulfilled--the story was okay. I have read worse in children's lit, believe me ("Goldilicious" comes to mind!) The concept is actually cute, but overall it's a bit too in-your-face and didactic for my taste, and there really is no "style" to speak of. Basically, I think most parents with an ounce of creativity could come up with a similar bedtime story for their kids, and the fact that Madonna (whether you like her or not, her creativity cannot be denied!) seemed lack any originality reinforces my soapbox oratory that not just ANYONE can write a GOOD children's book, and being a celebrity does not automatically give you the gift.
Also, parents of young children who wish to keep them "young" should be advised that the girls in this story look to be ten going on eighteen and are very chic and appear to be wearing make up and fashionable clothing. Not placing a value judgment here, but I know some girls in the target audience for this book and their moms would NOT want anything to encourage the girls' budding interest in wearing lipstick, etc.
What I REALLY hated about this book was the celebrity treatment it is given. I really, really liked the illustrations (the largest part of my three-star rating) and went to look at the back flap of the book to see what else he had done. But, the bio was nowhere to be seen! Just a big spread about Madonna blah-blah-blah. I double-checked the cover for his name. Nope! One would think that Madonna did the illustrations herself!!! Only on the inside cover page does it mention (way below MADONNA) our poor neglected illustrator Jeffrey Fulvimari. This is SOOO RUDE!!!! Children's picture books are supposed to be a marriage between words and pictures, author and illustrator (assuming they are not one in the same). Let us hope that the fat royalty checks from this needlessly popular series are some consolation for Fulvimari.
