    1. A lesson about pulling ppl's ponytails that will stick with you. This was a gift to my nephew, Scott, from my husband and I. It's one of his mom's nostalgic childhood authors. There is an adorable aspect to that, reading the ones that were read to you, to your child. So- of course I wanted to support that.

Yet, each morning, she returns to find them imitating her previous hairstyle.Flattery, or it's only cool whenthey wear her looks? This story's rather deep with humor and an hilarious ending all ages can appreciate.

    7. I LOOOOOOOVED this book! It sends the message that it is okay to be unique and yourself! Although it does send the message that it sucks to be copied, it also sends the message that sometimes the weird things are the things that people will want and you can be popular because of it. Another twist on this that I loved was that Stephanie didn't want to be popular, she did it because it made HER happy, which is the most important thing! The only part that I didn't like about this book was that the [...]

    8. This book shows the perils of being a copycat, and interestingly shows how adults as well as children can be copycats and conformists. There are a couple of funny parts in this book.

    19. Interesting book about individual decision making, individuality and peer pressure. The author uses Stephanie's ponytail style to make about about parents allowing their children to be individuals with their own choices, tastes and personality. The author always indicates that what is allowed at home can be shamed in public. An interesting twist is how others dislike or shame Stephanie but copy and imitate her actions and eventually words. The illustrations in the book capture Stephanie and vari [...]

    20. I liked this book a lot. I think it could be used for second or third grade. This book can be used to teach individuality. It can also teach to just be yourself. I really liked this book because it was unlike others in the fact that the main character, even thought she was being teased, she kept being herself.

    21. Robert Munsch’s books had strong, opinionated young women in a time where there were nowhere near as many choices available where that could be said. Stephanie is not perfect, but she is sure of herself and unique and a lot of fun to read about.
