The Barbie twins go to a bar, where two twin brother strangers BUY THEM DRINKS. This, in an easy reader? You've got to be kidding me.

Another one of those movie to book adaptations. If I hadn't seen the movie I wouldn't have a clue what the storyline for this book was. You can't put an entire movie into 32 pages.

I gave it 3 stars mainly because it was a nice step into reading book, level 2, for a little girl. Aside from it being a good practicing book for new readers, the storyline was pretty blah in these pages. I found myself having trouble following it because it left out so much of the movie, that the story in these pages was really not much of a story. If I hadn't known the movie, I would have been sitting there with a million questions afterwards. Having said that, most little girls that sit down ...more

An okay reader for girls who need some motivation with an extremely girly subject matter. 2nd to 3rd grade reading level.

This book really makes no sense, and I quickly realized it must be based on a movie. My 4 year old was totally confused, as was I.
