From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—With a small kingdom of well-behaved farmers and their sheep, Queen Sophie is bored, so she enrolls in a correspondence course from the Royal College of Beauty. Because each of the 12 lessons must be practiced on 50 different people, the queen orders everyone to the castle daily for haircuts, curls, shaves, coloring, and manicures. All through the summer, Sophie beautifies her long-suffering subjects and their flocks. Then one morning these stylish folks—with their even more stylish sheep—protest that they have no time for their proper work. When the devastated Sophie apologizes, her subjects admit they have liked some of the things she has done. She finishes her beauty course and turns the castle into Queen Sophie's Hair Palace. Far and wide she is known as the Queen of Style, not so much for her handsome subjects as for their multicolored, poodle-trimmed, bedazzling sheep. Oil paints over acrylics make these bright, playful pictures pop, and the cartoon style highlights the absurdities of Queen Sophie's ministrations. Readers are invited to find the rabbit, cat, and Tyrannosaurus rex hidden in each picture. This is a story that can be enjoyed on many levels time and time again.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
