How to Get Married by Me, the Bride

Sally Lloyd-Jones, , illus. by Sue Heap. . Random/Schwartz & Wade, $16.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-375-84118-7

From the creators of How to Be a Baby... by Me, the Big Sister , comes a rambunctious and entertaining “guide” to getting married, narrated by an overzealous little bride. There are a few rules—“you can marry anyone you like! (Except they need to like you back)”—and traditions (“Now you throw a big bunch of flowers at people's heads”), but this bride's idea of marriage is all about pretend: when it comes time to say “I do,” she's wearing a paper crown and the groom, a feathery, blue wig. With just a wisp of practical advice, this is a stylish and witty companion book. Ages 4–8. (Apr.)
