Manning, Jane Millie Fierce. Philomel, 2012. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Content: G.
Millie is a little girl who needs to blow off some steam. Tired of being invisible to others, she looks for ways to make sure people notice her.
The writing isn’t particularly memorable, but the illustrations are full of fun and great character. A story about how we all need to get angry sometimes, the main character attempts to make people notice her through negative behaviors. Although Millie does try to right her wrongs, I didn’t feel there was any resolution to the problem that launched the tantrum in the first place. I finished the story feeling a little disappointed, not inspired.
