In the second book to feature Brownie and her kitty, Pearl, they’re getting dressed to the nines. Each page focuses on a different adornment Brownie and Pearl select: “Brownie finds feathers. Pearl finds pearls.... A little powder? Yes!”). The lipstick, though, is just “for Brownie.” She goes to town with the glitter, and when they step out, “everyone” (aka her parents) comments on how “dolled up” they are. Readers should, once again, enjoy being privy to Brownie and Pearl’s special world. Ages 3–5. (May)
