Superlove by Charise Maricle Harper -- ADVISABLE

Harper, Charise Mericle Superlove, illustrated by Mark Chambers. PICTURE BOOK. Alfred A. Knopf, 2014. $16.99. Content: G.

Today the self-proclaimed Superlove is determined to marry off all of her stuffed animals and pets. (Naturally, she will be the matchmaker, decorator, and flower girl in this scenario.) Unfortunately, Pinky the cat refuses to cooperate. But when Superlove tearfully tells her mom her troubles, they are able to come up with an alternate plan.

This love-and-flower-filled book is perfect for wedding-obsessed children, and the ending is very cute. Kids from broken homes may not find the twist quite as sweet or romantic, however.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
