It's a cute book with recognizable costume dilemmas and a cute ending. I really love that when the character put on the costumes, a version of the costume would also appear beyond them. But the whole book was ruined for me by the culturally appropriative "costume", and slur, included in the book.

The book is made much better by skipping those couple of pages-which I would do if reading to anyone else-but it definitely ruined my read-through. This book is a little old but not that old.
