Description

Glamourpuss has it all.



She has style.



She has charm.



And she knows how to strike a pose.



Glamourpuss loves being the center of attention. So when an unwelcome guest (a dog, no less!) steals the spotlight with some tasteless bow-wowing and undignified tail-wagging, Glamourpuss worries that she's going to fall out of fashion.



Is there room for only one superstar in this mansion? When Glamourpuss makes her most majestic move to find out, the result is pure purrfection.

Praise For Glamourpuss

Praise for Sarah Weeks's PIE:



* "Weeks deftly leavens moments of hilarity with the process of grieving in this sweet coming-of-age story in which Alice learns from Aunt Polly to follow her heart and to open it as well. Readers will close the book with a satisfied sigh and may seek out an adult to help them bake a pie." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review



* "What do you get when you take some scrumptious pie recipes, stir in a mix-up of a mystery involving an overweight cat and a legacy, then add a sly satirical nod to the Newbery Medal? This irresistible confection. . . . Warm, delicious and filling." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review



"The text richly describes the pie-making (and eating) process and includes multiple mouth-watering recipes for readers to try themselves. This would make a tasty readaloud for classrooms or families; stock up on pie ingredients first." -- BCCB



"This enjoyable chapter book is a real charmer." -- BOOKLIST



"Stimulates both sweet tooths and sweet nostalgia." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
