Mary had a little glam, that grew into a lot. And everywhere that Mary went, she wasn't hard to spot.
Brief Synopsis: In a delightful rhymed text, Mary accessorizes to the limit, brings style to school and inspires her classmates to make the most of their wardrobe when stepping out at recess. But when their destination is revealed, Mary thinks quick to keep everyone dressed for fun on the playground.
Why I Like This Book: Jumping off from the familiar Nursery Rhyme, this story immediately impressed me with it's clever diversion and fun. Mary's fashion sense inspired lots of creativity and individuality. With a surprising twist at the end, this book is fashion fun for all!
