Barkley, Callie Ellie the Flower Girl (The Critter Club #14), Illustrated by Bishop, Tracey.113 pgs. Little Simon, 2016. $16.99. Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
Ellie has decided that it would be wonderful to be a flower girl in a wedding, and her wish comes true when her cousin asks her to be just that. But things go wrong from the start, first off the dress isn’t fluffy and sparkly, its just plain. Then she has an accident with the dress. Will her dreams be crushed? Also the girls of the critter club are trying to find a home for a puppy and not having luck either. Features many illustrations to aide ease of understanding for new readers.
I adore this series, the text and plot is just right for K-2 grade new readers and is filled with adorable illustrations. That being said I usually only buy the first 2-5 books in a liked series, it just gets too overwhelming after that in my small school library.
