Picture Book Review : Miss Dorothy-Jane Was Ever So Vain - Julie Fulton

Having already read (and loved) Tabitha Posy Was Ever So Nosy, we were delighted to receive another of Julie Fulton's books, Miss Dorothy-Jane Was Ever So Vain. As you can tell from the title, it's entirely written in rhyme, which always leads to some fun story-telling at bedtime. The Madhouse Mini-testers also loved the brightly coloured illustrations.

As the title suggests, Miss Dorothy-Jane starts off the story as a very image-conscious young lady, always impeccably dressed with never a hair out of place.

Pierre and Juliette both giggled madly when she almost got pooped on by a seagull (especially as - as they gaily told me - they remembered the time it happened to me !).

But Miss Dorothy-Jane has a good heart and, when a little puppy needs rescuing from the pond, she doesn't hesitate to jump in and save it, despite obliterating her chances of being elected "best lady" to visit the queen.

But there is an important life lesson here - it's what's on the inside, not the outside, that counts and having shown how lovely she is, she does get to meet the royal visitor.

It's a fun read with a great message.
