Coco Chanel Reviews
Ya gurl is craving some children's literature as it seems. :> Not sure why but every time I go to my local bookshop now I cannot restrain myself and need to read one of the Little People, Big Dreams-biographies. I'll be through that series in no time, just you wait. ;)
The installment on Coco Chanel was my least favorite so far. The information which Sánchez chose to display were quite boring; they could have been presented in a more exciting manner, highlighting the importance of Chanel's wo ...more

This cute little kids book is an introduction to a world renowned designer whose life, though quite controversial, was very interesting. Having read her biography once before, I wondered how they would tame her life story into a children's book but I have to say the authors and illustrators did a fabulous job to tell her story through sequential art and few words. The drawings reminded me of the cartoon "Madeleine". Quick read, definitely suitable to read to a younger audience. Special thanks to ...more
