I first learned about Iris Apfel from a documentary. It was delightful to spend time watching this feisty and original senior citizen. Now, a favorite series, is telling Iris’s story to young readers. She will help them to see that the most important thing that a person can be is themself!

Readers will learn that Iris was interested in fabric and fashion from a young age. Both were used by her in order to express herself vividly and uniquely. Her design instincts for homes took her as far as the White House. When Iris was 84 a collection of her fashion was put on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Quite a life!

Iris achieved a lot. Most appealing are her spirit and sense of fun. Hopefully, young readers will find her story inspiring. It is well told in this entry of the series and accompanied by delightful illustrations.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
