Millie Fierce Sleeps Out

Millie Fierce Sleeps Out

Little girls can be strong and fierce and brave—and sometimes their ferocity is just the thing they need to save the day. Millie is strong. Millie is fierce. But Millie has learned to keep her fierceness in check. And since she’s been sweet all summer long, Millie gets to have a sleepout with her friends. One where she promises to be well behaved. But things don't go as Millie planned, and our fierce little heroine is not happy. Still, she tries her best to keep her fierceness inside. But when the scary dog from next door howls at the girls' tent, Millie's ferocity saves them all! A perfect addition to a bookshelf filled with Fancy Nancy, Eloise, Olivia, and Ladybug Girl. Praise for the Millie Fierce books: *"Readers already know what Millie learns: To everything there is a time and purpose, including fierceness; they will welcome this validation."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Millie Fierce is a delightfully naughty mix between Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are and Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry."--School Library Journal "An unexpected Yeatsian lilt to Manning's writing ("Millie frizzed out her hair and made the crazy eye") lifts the text out of the ordinary; her powers of observation set it apart, too."--Publishers Weekly
