You are probably wondering why I am wearing this dress! Well, my human thought I should be fashionable for my latest book review!
It’s The Adventures of Coco Le Chat: The World’s Most Fashionable Feline. And it stars my blogging pal Coco the Couture Cat! I have to be honest, though, I am kind of embarrassed about reviewing this cute, stylish book while wearing an off-the-rack dress! Not only that, it is a hand-me-down from several seasons ago that Sparkle never wore. Coco wouldn’t be caught dead in this!
According to the book, Coco is a jet-setting French kitty who comes to New York City to visit some of its famous landmarks, and to lunch with fashion editors. It is actually just a role — in real life, Coco is an American kitty, but she still has a very unique fashion sense! That is how she got the role for the book.
Coco has a different outfit for every New York adventure — and she has lots of fun! This 32-page book is part illustration, part photograph, but every picture of Coco is a real photo with a real outfit! It’s supposedly a children’s (and kitten’s) book, but with its hard cover and elaborate design, any cat (and fashion) lover will adore it.
It even has these pretty ribbon bookmarks. I thought they made really fun cat toys, but my human said I was not allowed to play with them.
As you may have gathered, I do not mind wearing clothes, but if I must, I really hope this book inspires my human to dress me up in something a little more haute couture and a little less pet store discount bin.
The official release date for The Adventures of Coco Le Chat is October 25 — that’s tomorrow! But you can order it from Amazon now. And I recommend you do — this is a beautiful, charming book and it would make a wonderful gift… maybe even for yourself!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of Coco’s book for review. Link to Amazon is an affiliate link, so I can make enough money for a decent wardrobe!
Ooooh, that looks like a great read! But why would they have those fun ribbons in there as a bookmark if you can’t chew on them???

You look furry good in that dress , Summer !
My mom-person think’s that book looks very beutiful â™¡â™¥â™¥
Marty the Manx says
That looks like a fun book Summer ! You look adorable in your frock! Don’t worry about ‘off the rack’.
We love your review of Coco’s book, Summer! What a lovely book it looks like…we are so happy for Coco and Teri on their new book!
Summer, we think you look great in your little dress. If you hadn’t said it wasn’t new or haute couture (or is that hot cature) we wouldn’t have noticed.
Feline Yogi says
This book sounds fabulous Summer and your little dress is adorable. Speaking of books, maybe our humans will see each other at the Catification book signing at The Grove on Monday night?

Wow, we didn’t know that Coco was going to have her own book! Whoa, very cool. She is so beautiful and stylish. I tend to go au natural in my fur suit all the time.
Laila and Minchie says
Off the rack sure does look cute on you, Summer! And what a great book you are looking at.
Maxwell, Faraday & Allie says
Our human has met Coco a few times as well, and I am simply GREEN with envy over her wardrobe! Our human says she is a fashion maven, an icon in the kitty couture industry, and our slacker humans should ante up and provide us girlcats with equally stylish clothing.
(Good luck with yours, ours refuses to budge. *sigh*)
Katnip Lounge says
What a fun book…Mommy saw Coco at Blogpaws and she wonders if she’ll remember any of the outfits in the book!
Teri and Coco the Couture Cat and all the kitties of Curlz & Swirlz says
Oh Summer! You look young and fresh in that frock! And believe it or not, that same dress was in Coco’s closet at one time (til she outgrew it…) so you should be pleased you two girls have the same fashion sense!
Coco thanks you for a superlative review of the new book featuring her, and we all loved the photos of you purrusing the pages, too!
You and your human put together a great post and we so appurrciate the high marks you gave the book and we look forward to seeing you on the catwalk someday soon!
Cathy Keisha says
The only thing I find wrong with your dress is it looks a little small and that you were forced to wear it. That looks like a fun book and if we had the money, weâ€™d buy it.
Austin Towers says
Summer, I’d rather be on the rack than wear anything at all!!
Woo how exciting and doesn’t someone look good and oh so chic
The Swiss Cats says
We don’t wear clothes, but you look cute in your little dress ! It looks like Coco is a very fashionable cat ! Purrs
You do look cute Summer but its hard to be as fashionable as Coco! Our mommy met her and said she’s very glamorous!
Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla says
I have a custom made coat and the publicist calls it goat-ure but it is nothing like what Coco wears. The publicist met her at BlogPaws and was quite impressed.
Yeah, you definitely need to lose that dress – maybe drag it to the litter box and cover it up – like it was poop (’cause it is!) MOL
OTR or not, pink is DEFINITELY “you”, Summer beauty!
Ellen Pilch says
You look adorable and thanks for letting us know about the book. I have never heard of Coco, but I plan to check out her website.
Colehaus Cats says
Who cares if it’s an off-the-rack? You give it style. You give it life! Just don’t give our mom any more ideas. She was saying something about a costume just this morning! Awesome book review that we’ll check out! Whadya mean, you aren’t allowed to play with the book ribbons?
Chey, Gemini and Ichiro says
I think you are quite fashionable. I mean not everyone can make an off the rack dress look good!
Girl you look gorgeous! That sounds like a really cute book! MomKatt says to see if they can make a “Kitty Vogue” for stylist kits such as yourselves!
That looks very cute and fashionable book!
Summer, you look very pretty wearing that outfit. Since you don’t mind wearing clothes, I’m sure your human will get you haute couture next time 🙂
Pipo &Minko ~ WeBeesSiameezers says
Minko will tolerate some ‘gear’, Pipo just ‘folds up’, MOL!
You look good in that dress, nevfur mind what that book wants you to keep up with, MOL!
All of the things we have had to endure ovfur our furs came from ‘the rack’…
madi and mom says
Summer you are surely dressed appropriately for this great review. Mom is amazed and wonders how I’d look in a dress. MOL I told her to keep wondering cause it wasn’t happening
hugs madi nekkked your bfff
Our Mama met Coco at Blog Paws. How great that she has a book out ! Summer, you would look good in a paper bag! Seriously! 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
Fur Everywhere says
It sounds like a really cute book!
Kitties Blue says
This is so super exciting. Mom had no idea that Coco was going to have a book. She definitely is going to order one for us. Thanks for the review. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Toby & Leia says
Well, it’s tough to keep up with our fashionista furriends, that’s for sure. But we do like that dress… think of it as “retro”. 🙂
HH and The Boys says
What a fun book and you look perfect in your dress….
Have a great day.
hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles
Melissa & Truffles says
Summer, it’s not where the clothes come from, it’s the kitty wearing them that make the clothes extra special! The book looks adorable 🙂
Charles Huss says
Cute idea for a book. I have trouble getting a harness on my boys, I wouldn’t attempt to try to put clothes on them.
The Island Cats says
The mom has met Coco twice…and she says Coco is one fashionista! How cool that she has her own book now. And Summer, you’re on the road to becoming a fashionista yourself. 🙂
Katie Bella says
Sparkle, off the rack keeps you humble before your admirers…right? xxoox
Summer, you do might good book reviews and that does look like one cute book. Mom wants to get more dresses for Two Two also. It is so hard to find ones that fit. But you look good in that dress Summer.
That looks very cute and so do you sweet Summer!
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
We won’t wear clothes …. But you look great!!!
Oh, Summer, you loo cute in that dress, but there is no way anyone would ever get clothes on me. I don’t even like my harness!
HaHnnah and Lucy says
If we wore clothes we have no doubt they would be off the rack too Summer.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Georgia and Julie says
Very neat book!
We also agree that you look good in off the rack.
You make it look fashionable 🙂
Purrs Georgia and Julie,

Lone Star Cats says
