Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks

Glamourpuss has it made, living with the Highhorsens who are gazillionaires. Her only job is to be glamorous and she's very good at it. Then her glamorous life is disturbed when Mr. Highhorsen's sister arrives from Texas with her dog, Bluebelle.

 Glamourpuss instantly dislikes Bluebelle, who ends up stealing all of Glamourpuss' thunder. No way can anyone else be more glamorous than Glamourpuss, but Bluebelle is always parading around in showstopping outfits. When Bluebelle chews up all of her own fancy clothes, Glamourpuss realizes that Bluebelle wants to be glamorous without the clothes, so Glamourpuss takes Bluebelle under her wing.

In the end, Glamourpuss realizes that when it comes to being glamorous, less is sometimes more, but when it comes to having friends, you can never have too many.

 This is a fun picture book with beautiful illustrations. Young readers might be captured by the glittery cover, but they'll find a nice tale that reminds us all that less is sometimes more.
