Maude the Not-So-Noticeable Shrimpton

author: Lauren Child
illustrator: Trisha Krauss

Meet the Shrimpton family — so talented, so eccentric, so larger than life, you couldn’t miss them if you wanted to. Mrs. Shrimpton wears flamboyant hats, and Mr. Shrimpton’s moustache makes quite a statement. The youngsters each have a stand-out quality: beauty, dancing, singing, a sense of humor that’s a laugh a minute. Indeed, the Shrimptons live to be noticed — all that is, except Maude, who prefers to blend into the wallpaper. But when Maude receives a ferocious tiger for her birthday instead of the goldfish she asked for, might her talent for blending in come in handy? With stylized artwork evoking both Vogue magazine and Edward Gorey, here is a story to bring a smile to all the quiet stars among us.

Lauren Child teams up with a debut illustrator to tell a cautionary tale about the surprising perils of craving constant attention.
