Happy Book Birthday to Tara and Becky’s debut picture book – I Am Famous!
From the jacket copy:
“Kiely knows she is famous! The paparazzi (her parents) follow her every move, documenting it all with cameras. It’s exhausting being famous, but someone has to do it! She even gets to perform a big song at her grandfather’s birthday. When she messes it up, she’s worried she’s lost her audience forever, but it turns out that no one is as loyal as her fans who love her.”
Her parents may be her biggest fans, but Kirkus Reviews loved Kiely, too! They said:
“Move over, Eloise, Fancy Nancy, and Olivia; this curly-haired, brown-skinned protagonist has miles of flair and knows how to use it….
Tongue-in-cheek and humorous, this commentary that’s spot-on for kids growing up in a digital age will entertain children while giving their parents some apt food for thought.
Glamour, attitude, bucketloads of confidence, and a hefty dose of narcissism all rolled into the big personality of one memorable little girl.”
