The Ladybug Girl series fires on all cylinders, and LADYBUG GIRL AND THE DRESS-UP DILEMMA is no different. Here, there's a clever interplay between Lulu's sense of who she should be for Halloween, according to her brother and tradition, and her desire to still inhabit the identity that feels right, and it's all underscored with vivid, evocative watercolor scenes of hay, falling leaves, and pinkish sunsets that evoke both the past and the present simultaneously.

This series encourages creativity as much as unstructured time, and there's a nice pacing that suggests every dilemma is figured out in due time with a little space and a lot of encouragement to find your own way.
