School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Marisol McDonald is fiercely determined not to match. The character came out of Brown's own experience growing up in a bicultural home with a North American father and a Peruvian mother and not being sure where she fit in. This title finds Marisol preparing for her birthday party. Her friends ask her what sort of party she should have, and, of course, Marisol doesn't want one theme. When she goes shopping with her Mami, she insists on buying clothes that don't match. When the party arrives, Marisol has dressed up as a soccer-player-pirate-princess-unicorn. The mismatched party is a success, and is topped by a Skype visit with the child's Peruvian grandmother. Pair this with Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match/Marisol McDonald no combina (Children's Book Pr., 2011) for a dress-up storytime. (c) Copyright 2013.
