    It's encouraging to find a picture book featuring a young girl who seems to challenge many assumptions others make about what girls should fear or how they should behave. In the case of Poppy Louise Littleton, she likes snakes, monsters, and scary stories. Life's truly an adventure with this seemingly fearless girl. To her sister Petunia's surprise, she's not even afraid of the dark basement. But one day she finds something that does make her nervous, and she needs some help to deal with that fe [...]

    Adorable book about a girl who loves adventure, but struggles with the people around her who don't. It takes a while, but eventually her sister discovers something Poppy Louise is kind of afraid of. The author is Jenna McCarthy (NOT Jenny). Molly Idle's illustrations are fantastic, as always.

    McCarthy, Jenna Poppy Louise Is NOT Afraid of Anything, illustrated by Molly Idle. PICTURE BOOK. Random House, 2017. $16.99. Content: G.Poppy Louise is the bravest kid ever. Watching her push boundaries is nerve-wracking for her parents, but it's convenient for her easily-scared sister and friends -- all of whom can enlist Poppy to do the terrifying tasks they don't wish to do. But then one day, Poppy discovers that there is, indeed, something that scares her.As is expected in a book illustrated [...]

    I'm not the biggest fan of celebrity authors, so McCarthy's book would not be one I would seek out but since I was given a copy, I decided to read it. Her central character appears to be a fearless young girl operating in a world with more cautious friends and families. Of course, everyone is always afraid of something. The story has a good universal theme but flawed in its telling.

    Poppy Louise is a total risk taker and her sister Petunia is far more sensible. Molly Idle's signature illustrations are what make this book stand out but I do think lots of kids will really appreciate the story. Being brave or timid is an important part of how kids see themselves and others and the story's resolution will be comforting to the more cautious ones.

    Poppy Louise is a brave protagonist, rendered in inviting illustrations, but her arc in this book in unclear. Yes, we finally learn that there's at least one thing she's afraid of, but that event doesn't appear to lead to growth or change in Poppy Louise.

    Poppy is super brave but has trouble getting others to try. And maybe she's not quite as brave as she thought.

    Poppy is actually Flora. I love Molly Idle but her illustrations are so distinctive that I kept wanting her to break out some birds to dance with.

    A very brave young girl discovers something she is afraid of. Great to talk about we all are nervous about some things.

    I really like the illustrations and this would be a fun book to read in storytime. The kids will really be able to relate to the characters. :)Themes: being brave, sisters, being yourself

    I think Molly Idle was a smashing choice for illustrator for this book. Her illustrations fit perfectly with the story.

    I knew these illustrations looked familiar! I loved the book visually, but there was a big part of me that didn't want the main character to end up "learning her lesson" and curbing her adventurous spirit. It seems like we do enough of that for girls already. Because of this, I felt like the ending wasn't fully realized. However, I do think kids need to know their limits in order to stay safe, so it is kind of a mixed bag.
