To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I liked how all the grown-up characters wanted to make Marianna May happy by dying her dresses the different colors so she could do all of her favorite activities and have fun. I would recommend this to anyone of all ages.
2020 Update: It has brightened my day to see that this will be re-released in hardcover. I was so sad when Tomie DePaola died.
Even though my daughter is now 11, I’m still getting a copy of this. Our paperback, which I bought used years ago, has definitely seen better days! ****
This was one of my favorite books as a child. I loved the story and the illustrations. I discovered as an adult that Tomie DePaola was the author of many of my other favorites when I was little. This book and Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs are must reads! Try to collect as may books by this author/illustrator as you can.
