Too purpley, too tickly, too puckery, too prickly

There is not a single outfit in the closet that our little fashion plate wants to wear. She tries on everything, but nothing is quite right. And the outfits are getting wilder by the minute

It's a scene that is all too familiar to parents, wrapped up in a package that is all too difficult to resist: a playful rhyme scheme and colorful, textile-driven art.

About the Author

Author Jean Reidy's been told that a naughty little kid lurks somewhere inside her - and she takes that as a high compliment. She writes from her home in Greenwood Village, Colorado where she lives with her husband, Mike. She has four children and hoards of nieces and nephews who provide her endless inspiration. Too Purpley! is her first picture book. Please visit her at Genevieve Leloup studied graphic arts, animation and printing in Belgium where she was born. Her whimsical illustrations have highlighted editorial articles, paper products, ads, packaging, children's furniture and textiles including lots of children's clothes! She loved working on her first book. When not drawing, she travels as far as possible, bakes large amounts of cookies and plays accordion in her Brooklyn digs.
