Kiki the cat is a super hero. Whenever there is a fashion disaster she turns into Fashion Kitty, has the ability to fly and can fix any fashion blunder. Her school changes policy and everyone must start wearing uniforms, what a tragedy! But is it? Fashion Kitty doesn't receive any calls. There is something bigger afoot here and maybe you don't have to be a super hero to be a hero. This was a cute little girly-girl story that I'm sure the intended audience will love. It pretty much reads like a ...more

Overall, I have to say, these books are a lot of fun. They are not just watered down versions of stereotypically masculine superhero stories. They celebrate all that is fun about being female, and put a unique and creative twist on the superhero genre. I did notice a lot of similarities between Grace from the Just Grace series and Fashion Kitty - both are strongly empathetic, and both are hugely optimistic, and always try to look toward the positive - but while Grace is bound by the rules of ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read graphic novels
This is the third 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 like ...more

This graphic novel was cute and entertaining. I love Kiki's positive interactions with her family and schoolmates. Her family is understanding about her superhero powers and support her through all of her activities. The story is pretty basic and a fun one at that - which will make these graphic novels easier for younger kids to read. The style of the illustrations remind me a little bit of Babymouse, only with full colors. Overall, something I would like to see in my own school library.

This is really rather well made, and I can see why kids might dig it, but I had a pretty hard time relating to it, and didn't feel overly pressed to seek out any of the others (aside from the original, as I was curious as to her origin).
Quirky and funny. My first Fashion Kitty book- I liked it better than I thought I would. 3 1/2 stars

I love Fashion Kitty. You have to appreciate a super hero with a fashion focus. The whole series is fun and a great read for 1st to 3rd graders.

I am quite sure there is no more perfect graphic novel series for me and only wish there were more titles in the series and that they had been available when I was nine.

Oh No! It's Uniforms! Will Fashion Kitty be able to save the day? Tune in to find out!

Another great Fashion Kitty adventure, where our heroine gets help from whom you'd least expect!

I think the paper dolls and fold-y fortune thingie would be fun, were I little and not borrowing this book from the library.
