4.75 / 7.0

Pretty cute book! I like that it uses just pictures to tell part of the story. I think the idea of the book is relatable, especially for kids who are easily sidetracked, but the text is a little repetitive.

Who Wrote Totally Tardy Marty

Erica S Perl

Erica S. Perl is an established picture book author (Chicken Butt!) making her debut as a young adult novelist with Vintage Veronica. The story behind Vintage Veronica began at The Garment District, the Boston area’s legendary vintage clothing store (where, P.S., Erica will be reading and signing Vintage Veronica on March 27, 2010 at 1 pm!). Erica started taking notes and drawing inspiration from the unique characters and one-of-a-kind clothing articles she discovered there. Her research grew into a short story about a girl named Veronica, which then evolved to become a book.
