G735 Book Review of Bossy Flossy by Paulette Bogan

Title of the book: Bossy Flossy

Author: Paulette Bogan

Publisher: Henry Holt and Company

Publishing Date: 2016

ISBN: 978-1-62779-358-2


Flossy is the bossiest girl around. She's bossy at home and she's bossy in school. She's bossy with her friends, and sometimes she's even bossy to her teacher! Well-meaning Flossy doesn't understand why no one will listen to her.

Then Flossy meets Edward, a boy who is just as bossy as Flossy. But the collision of these two strong-willed forces has a surprising result: they learn how to be a friend.

Meet the Author:

Paulette Bogan admits she was bossy as a child. 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!

Personal Opinion:

Being born in March of this year, my son is a little too young to vocalize his opinions,although he really loved the colorful and bold illustrations, and I also liked the fact that a male character in the story appears to be Asian which will help him in the future relate to the story. It's a short, funny and somewhat exaggerated story of Bossy Flossy and how she meets her match in Edward. I will continue showing him the book so he can enjoy the colors. It's a small thing, but I do wish that cardboard pages were used in the book so he can practice turning pages without tearing them. Still I hope in a few years or so, if all goes okay, I can share memories of showing him this book.

4 out of 5
(0: Stay away unless a masochist 1: Good for insomnia 2: Horrible but readable; 3: Readable and quickly forgettable, 4: Good, enjoyable 5: Buy it, keep it and never let it go.)


  1. I just noticed you have a score of 0! hah, only for the masochists, I see.
    This book sounds cute. I hope Flossy becomes a big and important boss one day, since she's already got the bossy thing down.

  2. Lol well there are books that have no redeeming qualities (looking at you fifty shades) and they deserve a rating of 0. Lol I think Flossy will be an awesome boss. My six month old boy was into the colors, tore up one page :( now his attention moved on to Margaret George's Autobiography of Henry VIII- where he likes flipping and shutting the cover :)
