Dress Up Time! Brownie and Pearl Get Dolled Up by Cynthia Rylant

It's not quite bedtime and Brownie and Pearl get an idea!

Let's play dress up! Brownie looks around her room for inspiration.


Her dresser drawers are open, with an intriguing pink feather boa trailing out. I'll have that! Brownie thinks, tossing it fetchingly over her shoulders. Pearl picks a pearl necklace for herself, and plays with the trailing ends of the boa.

But Brownie is not done! Should she try a little face powder? Or perhaps a lot?

And how about a powdery Pearl? Why not!

And then there's lipstick! What are the possibilities? Brownie ponders the wisdom of trying to put lipstick on Pearl. She settles on her own lips only


Of course! Brownie has a glitter shower. Her kitty gets the glittery treatment, too!

Now for the BIG QUESTION: HAIR! Brownie brushes her locks until they shine.

But Brownie is not done. She grabs the atomizer and gives herself and Pearl a big spritz of arome de rose. In a cloud of parfum and her mother's shoes, Brownie and Pearl are ... ready for THE BIG REVEAL!

Her room is a mess, but her patient parents declare the dress-up spree a big success, in Cynthia Rylant's Brownie and Pearl Get Dolled Up (Beach Lane Books/Simon Spotlight).  Mom and Dad celebrate their dolled-up daughter and cat and ease them into bedtime in this delightful dress-up time story. Artist Brian Biggs adds all the droll details with his charmant illustrations that extend the text with touches of plentiful pink in this easy-reading story of jolly, girly fun.
