Flossy is the bossiest girl around. She's bossy at home and she's bossy in school. She's bossy to her friends and she's bossy to her cat. Sometimes she's even bossy to her teacher! Flossy doesn't understand why no one will listen to her. One day, Flossy meets Edward, a boy who may be just as bossy as she is. Has Flossy finally met her match?
I have known a few bossy children in my time as a teacher and mother. It is without a doubt frustrating for all when such a child is near. That is why I could understand Flossy and Edward.
It was nice to see the ending but I felt something was missing. When I taught preschool, we used redirection for children like Flossy and Edward and different other techniques to teach children why they were in trouble or why kids did not want to play with them. In the book, Flossy and Edward are sent to time out but there is no understanding for them of why their behavior is unacceptable. I realize this is a book and author privy but it just seemed this part was needed.
Other than that, I enjoyed this book. I thought the illustrations, also done by the author were just adorable. All of the pictures were colorful and larger than life. They made the idea of bossiness even more so.
Overall, this was a cute book and even with what I said above, I still give it 4 stars.
