This illustrated storybook captures the unforgettable fashions, vocabulary, and characters of the iconic 1995 film Clueless with an adorable kid-friendly adaptation about making friends.
Cher and Dionne are the coolest kids at Bronson Alcott Elementary School in Beverly Hills. When a new -- very unique, grunge-chic, and possibly clueless -- girl named Tai comes along, Cher and Dionne take her under their wings. They tell her how to dress and what hobbies to take up to be a part of their friend group. But Tai really likes skateboarding, baggy clothes, and wants to hang out more with the group of skateboarders. Cher and Dionne try a variety of ways to change Tai, alongside a cast of characters including Murray, Amber, Travis, Summer, Elton, and Miss Geist. But in the end, they realize that people are different and that's what makes them so cool!

First, I'd like to thank Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

Okay, if you're old enough like I am to have seen Clueless a million times, then you're gonna want to pick this cute children's book up anyway! With the amazing illustrations that capture the characters perfectly, I think you'd want to have this on your collection.

I do think that if you're connecting the movie to this book, young children aren't going to get it. So it's merely going to be a fan favourite for the adults.

However, the story itself revolves around friend groups, liking different things from others, and realizing that it's okay to be different from friends!

This is definitely a book to be read in a group out loud, and honestly you can extend this learning too! 

Overall this was a cute and entertaining story! Like I said before, as an adult you'll love the connection to the movie, but children will be able to take away that it's okay if everyone is different. That's what makes them all unique and special.

That's all for my review, I hope you liked it!

So until the next time, keep reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm! :)
