Jesse's Book Review

I read it fast because I was hooked by the plot

I liked that it made me think about what it would be like if I was in Princess Beautiful’s world. The video world made me wonder if it would it be good or bad to be a star. I enjoyed how the cat was so cute yet it was so bad. I loved it because it had so much description through pictures.

The first story is about an evil cat who tries to destroy the planet. The storytelling was very detailed through the pictures used. I read it fast because I was hooked by the plot and wanted to know what she would do next and what would happen.

[spoiler alert] In the end the cat turned from bad to good which I liked

This wasn’t like a normal reading book but told through pictures and comic style.
Overall, I liked the way illustrations and the detail such as comments like real online videos.

The message was that it is better to be good than bad.

I would say it is suitable for children aged 6-9 years.
