Um, I really wanted to like this book. Nursery rhymes turned couture? What's not to like? Every girl (on SOME level, I admit I'm at the "barely care" level) fantasizes about basking in the Riviera sun while being pampered all while wearing a gold Dolce & Gabbana bikini.

Absolutely adorable! No bonafide fashionista will be able to resist this book for her daughter, as a gift to an expecting fellow fashionista, or simply as a delightful little coffee table book that will undoubtedly create a little envious stir amongst your girlfriends ;) Couture name dropping at it's nursery rhyme finest!

This book is so cute and super fun!

A fun idea for a book but really only a certain demographic will get it. It was playful and fun and the illustrations were whimsical. I liked how the author modified traditional nursery rhymes and also was thoughtful by including the originals in an "appendix."

So cute.... so fun! Definitly written more for mommy than for baby... it's become a staple in my stack of coffee table books.

Clever, but not quite good. At times, the nursery rhyme felt forced.
