Summary
Second grade isn't always a breeze for Birdie. There are just so many opportunities to embarrass herself! But Birdie's got a secret weapon that nobody knows about--her alter-ego, Crafty Cat! Birdie can become Crafty Cat without anyone noticing, and she always manages to get herself out of a jam using her awesome crafting skills! From Just Grace and Fashion Kitty author Charise Mericle Harper comes the first volume in a hilarious, charming, and sweet new graphic novel trilogy for elementary-age readers about a little girl who can craft her way out of any situation. Each volume includes fun and simple instructions for do-it-yourself crafting activities.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This adorable comics series starts with the introduction of Birdie's alter-ego super, problem-solving, scissor-and glue-wielding Crafty Cat. It's Birdie's birthday, and she's excited to share some panda-themed cupcakes she baked for her classmates. Disaster strikes when she trips and falls on her way to school, ruining her cupcakes and soiling her dress. It's up to Crafty Cat to come up with a solution. Harper's style is not your conventional comics panel layout. A page is often a mixture of simple panels, captions, dialogue, and independent drawings that all interact with each other. Doodles of clouds and flowers make comments and chit chat with Birdie, and she often responds to captions or narration. This outside-the-box volume is a great example of the breadth of possibilities in sequential-art narrative. For an extra treat, the back of the book is chock-full of awesome craft ideas and even a cupcake decorating tutorial, so readers can play just like Birdie. Hand to fans of Janet Tashjian's Sticker Girl (2016).--Pino, Kristina Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In an entry-level graphic novel, Harper (the Just Grace series) dives into the mind of Birdie, a quirky worrier who loves to imagine herself as a resourceful feline alter ego, "Crafty Cat." Birdie wants a perfect birthday, but she drops her box of panda cupcakes on the way to school. The story zigzags in and out of reality, with Birdie envisioning how future events might unfold. Harper's line art helps distinguish what's happening inside Birdie's mind versus what's actually happening, yet the story is simultaneously tricky to track and absent much of a plot. For those who share Birdie's enthusiasm for crafting, instructions for several projects are included. Ages 6-10. Agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
