Dress Up Mess Up (A Crafty Chloe Book) by Kelly DiPucchio –OPTIONAL

DiPucchio, Kelly Dress Up Mess Up (A Crafty Chloe Book) 40 pgs. Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2013. $14.99  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G. PICTURE BOOK
Chloe has to create the perfect costume for the book character parade but her two friends have different ideas about the costume she should choose and Chloe doesn't want to disappoint either of them. Should she be a fairy or a monster? Or maybe just a bit of both?
The illustrations in this book are darling! The pages are large and feature a harmonious color scheme. I wouldn’t add this to my library collection because I would have liked to have seen Chloe talk to her friends about her their insistence on her own outfit, instead of trying to please everyone.  I never did know what Chloe actually want to be for the parade.
