The illustrations, however, are only a small part of the book (a great part, but only a small part). Cummins’ words capture the rhythm of a fast-paced city culture. Maximizing the use of alliteration–causing cacophonous climaxes, gloriously, gorging, eager, enthusiastic minds.
But this book is not about dress-up. This book is about self-discovery, about acceptance, and, like most of the books I’m drawn to, about unconditional love.
