Where is your imagination going to take you today? Much like My Name is Not Isabella Maggie is adventurous and finds herself in many different persona, but hers are all stacked upon each other and work in the most magnificent ways to her benefit. If you’re a meowing kitty, a super-being of powers and a princess of royal jewels why not also be even more. Each page is full of fun and humor! This is a winner for little girls to love an mama’s to enjoy too. A new favorite children’s author for me that I will definitely look forward to more from in the future.
