Missy is a very creative girl who does everything in her own super duper royal deluxe way! This first book is about Missy's school picture day. Despite Missy's keen fashion sense, her mother insists on choosing her picture-day outfit for her. But Missy thinks it's the most boring outfit EVER! She simply must find a way to make her picture-day outfit her own. With her trusty friend Oscar and her cat named Pink by her side, Missy is sure to come up with an outfit that's truly super duper royal deluxe! Full-color illustrations throughout.
With a big dose of personal style, a girl named Melissa Abigail Rose ( But everyone calls her Missy ) helps kick off the Branches line of illustrated early chapter books. Missy is the sort of girl who likes dressing up her cat as much as she enjoys dressing herself, and her disaster zone of a bedroom is an early indication that she s ruled by her id. She s especially excited about school picture day, and she tests no fewer than a dozen outfits before settling on one that includes a plaid skirt, super duper fuzzy hat with earflaps, glow-in-the-dark ring, and pink cowboy boots. Missy s mother, however, has a more traditional blouse-and-suspendered-skirt combo in mind, putting Missy in a foul mood until a solution presents itself, thanks to a classmate who s as introverted as Missy is outgoing. Nees s full-color cartoons appear throughout, keeping up with Missy s energy and the bustle and activity of an elementary-school classroom. Three more Missy titles will follow later in the year, and four additional Branches series from David Lubar, Andrew Joyner, and others launch simultaneously. Ages 5 7.
