Summary

In this modern-day fable, Wanda calls her brother and sister "fans," keeps up with celebrity news, and never misses a chance to share a selfie. She's ready to show the world how Wanda-ful she really is, but all people are interested in is . . . her dog! Superstar cartoonists Eleanor Davis and Drew Weing will have young readers in stitches with this hilarious tale of fame and fandom where friendship and family triumph.


Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "My name is Wanda. I'm a superstar, announces the little girl as she starts snapping selfies with her pet Wilbur, a droopy lump of a dog. With fame on the brain, Wanda posts her pictures and in no time finds that her shots have 20 million likes. Delighted when news crews arrive, she is shocked to find that it's Wilbur who has charmed the world at large. No, I'M the cool one, Wanda insists, alienating her furry number-one fan. Following the canine celebrity to discos and yachts, though, she learns what it is she really values, both in life and in her relationship with her pup. Wife and husband Davis (Stinky, 2008) and Weing (Set to Sea, 2010) have fashioned a morality tale with careening energy that plays distinctively zany cartooning off a primary-colored, retro palette. Though centered on difficult emotions that will feel familiar to kids, the story is leavened with comedy, allowing readers to navigate comfortably even as the robust sentences and repetition massage new reading skills. Another fine outing from TOON Books.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Davis (Stinky) and husband Weing have likely set a record for the number of selfies taken in a children's book with the introduction of Wanda, a self-described superstar who essentially sees herself as the next Beyoncé. With sienna skin and a hairdo like an exclamation point, Wanda considers her younger siblings and her pet dog, Wilbur, to be "fans," and she never misses an episode of The Star Show, which celebrates the hottest personalities of the moment (a spot currently held by "Sassy Cat"). After Wanda uploads a selfie featuring herself and Wilbur, it's her pet who goes viral, as news trucks and phone-wielding fans descend on the house to see "Floppy Dog." Hell hath no fury like a wannabe celebrity scorned, but as Floppy Dog is whisked off to dance clubs, expensive restaurants, and a yacht (with Sassy Cat, no less!), Wanda's anger morphs to concern and repentance. Chunky digital illustrations playfully spoof the lifestyles of the rich and famous (Floppy Dog is quickly adorned with sunglasses and jeweled chains), but Davis and Weing never lose sight of the story's emotional underpinnings.
