The book Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is about a cat and her family. They have a pet mouse, but it's okay they don't eat the mouse because they are vegetarians. In this book in the series Kiki was blowing out candles on her birthday when all of a sudden a shelf came crashing down and fell on her head. It was at that moment that she changed from normal kitty to superhero Fashion Kitty. The teachers at the school, including the librarian come up her a t-shirt fashion show idea. Each student in t ...more

Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is the fourth volume in Charise Mericle Harper's Fashion Kitty series. While the first three books were graphic novels, told entirely in comic book format, this fourth volume is more of a hybrid between a graphic novel and a chapter book. It took me a chapter or two to adjust to the new format, but after that, I grew to like it.

In this book, Fashion Kitty has a new nemesis, Leon Lambaster III, who comes from a family of inventors. Fueled by his desire to create an

What do marshmallows, yellow string, the Eiffel tower and Super Sticky Spray have in common? Not much really, except that they all have a key role in Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S (Ball of Yellow String (2011) by Charise Mericle Harper.

Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is Fashion Kitty's fourth adventure, but it is my first experience with the fashion forward cat whose family has two secrets: (1) they have a pet mouse and (2) Kiki Kittie is now a superhero called Fashion Kitty.

Reviewing for Net Galley

Fashion Kitty is back and her fans will still love her.

In an illustrated novel format Fashion Kitty has a new challenge. Leon Lambaster III, who comes from a long line of inventors, creates the CKF club (Catch Fashion Kitty), he even designs his own t-shirt.

Then the teachers, including the librarian, come up with a t-shirt fashion show idea. They want the kitties at school to design their own t-shirts based on something they've read in a book.

Fashion Kitty to the rescue! When the school t-shirt fashion show idea brings out an "evil mastermind" set on stopping Fashion Kitty, will she be able to foil his plan before it's too late or get caught in his string filled trap?

This is the first book I've read in the Fashion Kitty series, and I can see why this series is so popular. Fashion Kitty is hard not to love. In this particular story Fashion Kitty aka Kiki Kittie has to foil the plan on grouchy kitty, Leon Lambaster III, who's out to ca

In this fourth installment about Kiki Kittie, aka known to readers as super-hero Fashion Kitty, she must come to the rescue of – herself! Her good friend Lester Lambaster’s mean and nasty twin Leon is tired of the Fashion Kitty hype and has decided to expose her with the help of some schoolmates (who don’t want to hurt her, just see her up close). Wearing tee shirts bearing CFK (Catch Fashion Kitty), they plot to use some of the inventive Lambaster family’s sticky yellow string and marshmallow s ...more

Reviewing pre release edition.
My daughters' love Fashion Kitty!!! They love the graphics. I like the messages Fashion Kitty imparts. Always honorable and true to self. The format, cartoon strip style catches even the most reluctant readers eye. Not only did it keep her attention as well as her younger sister (7) it inspired them to create their own graphic novels as the pictures are a favorite aspect of Fashon Kitty. In Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. Fashion Kitty finds herself battling the fore

Recommends it for: children starting to read graphic novels
This is the fourth book in the Fashion Kitty series by Charise Mericle Harper. Our girls are hooked. The simple narrative and graphic novel format is very entertaining and easy to read, even for reluctant readers. Our girls like these stories (a lot) and they are reading the books in the series as fast they can get them. After reading the first two books aloud to them I refused to read any subsequent ones during storytime, but our girls had no difficulty reading them independently. Our girls lik ...more

I’m reviewing this for Net Galley

Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is about Kiki Kittie. Kiki Kittie was a normal kitty, but one day, a pile of fashion magazines fell on Kiki. Ever since, Kiki Kittie transforms into Fashion Kitty when there are fashion emergencies. At Kiki’s school, there are two brothers, Lester and Leon. Lester and Leon look exactly alike, but Lester is nice while Leon is mean. Their family likes to invent thinks and always in the color of yellow. Sometimes if Leon does something

The book I read this is year is called Fashion Kitty, its about this kitty named Kiki Kitty that fell and bumped her head and then she fell on magazines and became fashion kitty. Fashion Kitty they build statues out of Fashion Kitty. And this boy named Leon does not like her because everyone likes her and Fashion Kitty is famous , and something happens to Fashion Kitty.
I think this book is great book because, it tells all types of things happening to Fashion Kitty and the world.
It makes any read

Book four in the sweet Fashion Kitty series is in a new modified graphic-novel format. The story is told partly in prose and partly in comic-strip style pictures. It would be an excellent choice for young elementary aged reluctant girl readers who might be intimidated by a more densely written chapter book. Fashion Kitty is the alter ego of Kiki Kittie, who became a superhero when a stack of fashion magazines fell on her head, knocking her unconscious while she was blowing out the candles on her ...more

Reviewed for Netgalley using galleys. Fashion Kitty and the B.O.Y.S. is a charming story about how Leon tries to catch Fashion Kitty and even creates a club for those that want to catch her, too. Fortunately for Fashion Kitty most members of the club just wanted to be close enough to see her. Having never read a Fashion Kitty story before, I enjoyed the blending of text and comic style illustration to completely tell the story. There was enough background for a reader not familiar with the Fashi ...more

My son Milo had this to say:

M: It was about friendship, and doing the right thing. The one kid has a terrible brother and Fashion Kitty and her friend want to say, "Dude it's such a shame your brother is a big giant jerk," but they don't because number one how does that help anything? and two, because insulting a person in somebody's family is almost the same as insulting them.

I found this book less appealing than the graphic novels of Fashion Kitty. While Harper sets up a good conflict with clear good guys and bad guys, the characters didn't resonate with me. I found the continual emphasis on getting a cute outfit irritating. Lunch Lady and Babymouse create characters with a lot more appeal, in my opinion.

Shelves: elementary
A combination of traditional text and graphic novel, this book would seem to be addressing the early elementary student that has a life revolving around friends consumed with fashion and who is at the top of the social pyramid. The feline female, Kiki, also turns out to be a super hero, and there are incidents of lending support to friends who are dealing with problems of their own.

Fashion Kitty is still super cute and the plot is fine (OK, the battle against B.O.Y.S. was not the greatest) but I preferred the graphic novel format. Illustrated chapter book is not a better choice for this. Even as the audience ages, a graphic novel would still be appropriate. Disappointed.
Laura Z
I much prefer the full graphic novel format for Fashion Kitty and had to force myself to finish this book. I will not be reading or recommending any more Fashion Kitty books in this modified graphic novel format and I am hoping they return to the tried and true old format. Please.

This was a cool book. Fashionkitty is really Kiki kitty. I wonder why Leon hates Fashion Kitty so bad. This is how Kiki became fashion kitty. Fist a pile of books fell on top of Kiki. Then she got up and became Fashion Kitty. That's weird at how Kiki became fashion kitty.

I was kind of disappointed by the plot. Although it was cute and creative as always, something just felt missing and I didn't like how the story went as much. Although I liked it, it was not my favorite Fashion Kitty book.

They read a book and they picked a part they liked to put on a t-shirt. That was cool.
Especially liked the craft ideas in the back.

Meh. It was ok. The first couple were much better. It was mostly a rehash of the first books. Sad to see this series end with a whimper instead of a BANG!
