Review : Blueberry Queen by M. Peschke, Tuesday Mourning



From blueberries to beauty pageants, third grader Kylie Jean wants to be the queen of everything! But in her quest to be the best, this young southern belle learns a few lessons of her own. Mischievious, delightful and fun, this series will be at the top of every young girl's list

It's time for the annual Blueberry Festival, and Kylie Jean just knows she'd be the perfect Blueberry Queen.

My Thought
Blueberry Queen is one light reading for middle grade. It did not take an hour to finish its 114 pages. There are also illustrations inside the book. It makes the readers easier to get the pictures for everything that happen in every chapter.

In the beginning, we are introduced to Kyle Jean who lives in Texas with her big family. Kyle is a little girl who wants to be a beauty queen. She has knitted that dream since she can remember or in her words, since she was a bitty baby. She practices all the time to be the one.Then, the Annual Blueberry Festival is coming. Kyle Jean thinks this is a big chance for her to make her dream come true.

For me, Kyle was a cute little girl. She was self-motivated girl. I liked to see her enthusiasm. She knew that all the steps to be the beauty queen were not easy. But she never gave up.

The reactions from all family and people around her were remarkable . They were amazing. Just like me they thought it was funny but they still encourage Kyle to fulfill her dream. Her mother become the most adorable character. I loved when she kept remind her with her Pretty is as pretty does sentences.

However there is not any conflict that troubled her, this book is still an enjoyable reading. The message inside is wonderful. I would recommend this book to all young readers.

Cover and Illustration
I like all the illustrations that were drawn by Tuesday Morning. Kyle was so cute.
