Flossy is a young girl who bosses everyone around. She tells them what to do and how to do it; she definitely has the best way. She bosses everyone from her cat to her mother. However, when Flossy meets a new student, Edward, she seems to have met her match. Edward begins to boss Flossy around they will figure out on their own how to change for the better.
Bossy Flossy is a fun book that has a great message for kids and adults. Instead of just telling kids that bossing around others is bad, the natural consequences are shown, Flossy doesn’t seem to have many friends and nobody seems to listen to her. I also loved that together Flossy and Edward figured out their flaw and decided to overcome their bossiness through suggestions instead. Flossy has an important message for parents too; she is always saying that no one ever listens to her and this is a gentle reminder to parents that kids challenging behaviors may have an underlying reason. Bright, vibrant and fun illustrations brought Flossy’s world to life and I loved the diversity of her classmates.

She is the author and illustrator of Virgil & Owen, which was chosen as one of Bank Street Best Children's books of the Year 2016, Virgil & Owen Stick Together, which won a Mom's Choice Award Gold Medal for Picture Books, and Lulu The Big Little Chick, which won a Children's Choice Book Award. She lives in New York City with her husband, three daughters, and two dogs. They ALL think she is STILL bossy. But they've never told her to go to her room!
