All she wanted to Lauren Child is a genius children's book author and illustrator. I'm the owner of a little black poodle so put that breed and Lauren Child together for me and I'm gone!

All she wanted to Lauren Child is a genius children's book author and illustrator. That is truly a rare gift in the saturated literary world, and a boon to those of us who love well-written stories our children can enjoy. Known for her Clarice Bean and Charlie and Lola titles, Child ventured into another genre of storytelling with a stand-alone book about a poodle who hated being a dog that's lavished upon.

Who'd want to be a pampered poodle? Not Trixie, that's for sure. My daughter enjoyed it but being a huge Lauren Child fan I didnt think it was a good as some of her previous books. Another lovely captivating and visually gorgeous book from Lauren Child. Some nice discussion points for your child - not everyone wants to be who they are - but mostly just a nice story with Lauren's trademark quirky graphics. Due to the nature of the typefaces, it is not suitable for early readers.

Notes On The Illustration Of Who Wants To Be A Poodle I Don’t. This book is illustrated in a similar style to the Charlie and Lola series, though Charlie and Lola books make quite heavy use of collage, in which photographs appear to have been cut out and stuck on. This book retains the feel of collage but doesn’t employ that exact technique. Instead, I’m reminded more of the Japanese kimono, with its distinctive admixture of highly detailed patterns. I’m sure this is intended, since Verity is seen at one point wearing a kimono inspired dressing gown

Lauren Child takes the lead with this wry and wooly tale of a pampered poodle who just wants to paddle in puddles - like REAL dogs d.I have always loved Lauren Child's style. From her wild and frequent patterns selections to her use of assorted fonts, her style exhibits a particularly lovely sense of whimsy. Geometric black and white print drapes meet abstract pink walls and green cabbage print wallpaper. The effect is definitely striking rather than jarring.

The Pretty Poodle is a fictional tale about a girl, Mary, who learns an invaluable lesson which inspires. I read the article and it made me think of Grace r last name, but I can still picture her sitting quietly in the back of the classroom. Throughout my entire years in elementary school, I never had a conversation with her and I never heard her speak to anyone, not even a teacher. When I became a counselor in a NYC high-school I conducted group workshops for my students, and through those workshops I identified a student who was withdrawn. She made me think about Grace. I spoke to her one-on-one and began to get to know her better.

Trixie is a Poodle by breed, but just a dog at heart. Her own loves her and would do anything for her, but Trixie can't say to her, "I want to get dirty and play in the rain and take a walk on the wild side." This is the story of Trixie trying to communicate that point. The illustrations are mixed media and the lay-out of the text is fun and creative. Trixie's personality really comes through and my favorite image is her at the beauty parlor. It lets you know that she probably doesn't mind the pampering on occasion, but who doesn't like some spoiling at the end of the day? My second favorite illustration is Trixie on the therapist's couch.

Extra points for the fact that Poodles were originally hunting dogs and the traditional cut was to protect their joints from cold while in the water. Trixie just wants to be true to herself!

We love Lauren Child. We own just about every "Charlie and Lola" book she has written, and those books are loved and asked for as a bed time story on a regular basis. She is an author who can capture the thoughts and personality of every character she writes about, and this book is no different.

To start, you have to love the name Trixie Twinkle Toes Trot-a-Lot Delight--the given name of the poodle owned by one Verity Brulee. Just like the uppity name sounds, poor Trixie is stuck living in a world with an owner who thinks that everything in life is meant to be perfect and for show. Verity does not venture out in the rain, for fear of ruining her designer shoes, and she employs a butler AND a maid for the sole purpose of taking care of Little Miss Trixie. The problem is, Trixie does not want to be pampered, poofed, preened or perfumed. She feels trapped in a world of doggie salons, psychics, and her own doggie psychiatrist. Trixie longs for a life of fun and adventure--she wants to be a daring and dangerous dog like the ones she hears howling outside her apartment at night--not a poodle trapped in a penthouse. As Verity and Trixie are leaving the doggie psychiatrist one afternoon, the rain is pouring down and Verity has no choice but to go out in to a storm she would rather avoid. Puddles are everywhere, and this is Trixie's opportunity to take a daring leap in to the water and live the life she has dreamed about. (Albeit, she also did it to save another dog from inevitable drowning.) Verity's shoes get ruined in the process, but she learns an important lesson about what really matters in life, and to let her hair down a bit. From that point forward, Trixie and Verity scan the daily weather forecasts to look for rain, and promptly head out if it is. And all is right in Trixe Twinkle Toes Trot-a-Lot Delight's world. Well, everything but the silly name. This is a story with a moral, and it is presented in a wonderful manner.

My favorite part about this book is the artwork. It is absolutely phenomenal. Child uses mixed media illustrations that are out of this world that really brings the story to life. The artwork has texture and beautiful patterns, and her colors are vibrant and bold. After I read the book to my daughter, I went back to the beginning of the book and looked at just the artwork from cover to cover; I avoided reading the story all together just so I could really take a good look at all the beautiful (and FUN!) designs she included in the book. Her text winds across the pages and makes the book a lot of fun to read. But, that brings me to the reason I gave this 4.5 stars and not 5. On some of the pages, the artwork was so "busy", that you lost sight of the text, and in some cases, we missed entire sentences that were buried in the illustrations. Other sentences or words were just hard to read as they got caught up in the artwork. I point this out, so that if you are someone who has bad eyes, or finds things like this distracting, you would want to know this before buying the book. After I read the book once, I knew where to look for the text, but it is something you think could have been avoided if the text was laid out a little differently. Other than that, the book is a sheer delight, and is also bound to become a favorite story in our house.

I collect anything poodle. It is a fun story and one children would enjoy.

Stunning illustrations and a touching, quirky tale told from a "dog's eye view" make for an enormously fun read! I've given three copies away to kids, but will save one for myself-irresistible!

I love this book. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is very cute. As a poodle mommy it have a copy for myself and just bought a copy for my God daughter's birthday. It 's the kind of book to keep forever and pass onto some special little girl.

Cute story and could have been written about my toy poodle Pearl! Great for kids or anyone who loves poodles!
From the adorable illustrations to the clever story, we love this book in our house! My husband and I enjoy reading it as much as our almost three year old daughter.
