Marion Strikes a Pose (The Critter Club #8) by Callie Barkley –ADVISABLE

Barkley, Callie Marion Strikes a Pose (The Critter Club #8) 128 pgs. Little Simon, 2014. $16.00 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G.
Marion is a member of the Critter Club, a group of girls who helps take care of animals in a barn by their house. But each girls has their own interests outside of the club, Marion for example, loves fashion. When a competition comes up for clothing styling, Marion makes a new friend. Is this a true friend, or is Marion just being used for her fashion advice. Do the frogs the club is caring for have any advice for her?
Coming into this series at book #8 wasn't the best, looks like its better to start with book 1. But I thought it was high interest, fun, and sweet.There are great illustrations, with a modern style. I can think of a dozen or more students that would adore this book, both for the pet component, and the fashion. It’s a great transition book from early reader to chapter books, and this level can be difficult to find quality books for. I would add this series to my library.
