A too-gorgeous-not-to-have kind of book...

Too Purply is at first glance a very girly girlís book: itís story features a girl, its cover is very purple (which some would say is a girly colour) and is all about clothes (more girly-ness). However, those of us who are in the parental trap know that getting your child dressed in the morning can be a bit of a struggle at times, no matter if they are a girl or a boy. Finding something wrong with their clothes is just another in a long list of excuses why they simply canít comply with your wishes and get dressed and to this end, Too Purply is applicable across the board.

Showing a humorous appreciation of fashion and the inevitable faux pas; we are introduced to various styles, textures and colours that will bring out the fashionista in your darling child Ė and even if it doesnít; they will probably be tickled pink by the rather cute little tortoise that acts like a matching fashion accessory (not that we condone the use of animals in the way, whatsoever).

Too Purply is an enchanting book full of life and colour that will appeal to both sexes; with its rhythmic, undulating prose and fabulously vibrant illustrations, it is a real pleasure to read and look at. Perhaps a double-edged sword; in that it not only gives your child the confidence to find their own unique sense of style and express themselves through their clothes, but also fuels their possible excuses in the future Ė this is a too-gorgeous-not-to-have kind of book.
