Starlette Universe by Kathy Johnson @Bostickops
About the Author
Kathy Johnson is an attorney, creator of Starlette Universe and mother of Miss Vermont 1999 and Miss Vermont USA 2001 as well as a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the University of Georgia. She is a J.D. graduate from the University of Florida School of Law. The six Starlettes appeared in Pageantry Magazine for seven years and became the basis for the Starlette Universe series, which is replete with rhyme and wordplay. Eva From E-ville, a book of 1,000 puns is the second book in the middle-grade series. The first book is ‘CAT’astrophe. Kathy Johnson is also the author of What a Babe, which introduces Lil’ Lilly as the newest member of the Starlette Universe cast. Eva From E-Ville is unique in that it presents a new genre of story telling, “Piction,” where brightly colored text and over 300 illustrations interact to tell Eva’s story. For everyone who reads this book, the author offers this advice, “Whatever you do, don’t let ‘EVA’L get you!”
My daughter is slightly younger than middle school and she loves this book. She has not read the other one but is definitely interested. She struggles with chapter books right now – she is a very fluent reader but gets very bored and can’t quite sit through reading a chapter. But this book is awesome. The pictures are vibrant and there are so many great characters and some really good messages embedded within. I highly recommend this book for middle school/upper elementary girls.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
