About the Book

This is the story of Mabel, the chatty dress form of a budding fashion designer, and her furry companion, a little Yorkie named Brooklyn, and their fashion adventures through NYC from sample room to runway.

Mabel and her trusty sidekick, the pipsqueak Yorkie, take you through the cobblestone streets of a designer’s Brooklyn atelier to Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, the heart of the fashion industry. The rush to complete a fashion collection for the big runway show is not without a few fashion faux pas – a taxi fiasco, a missing pièce de résistance, and a ticking clock to the fashion show deadline. Can Mabel, the whimsical fashion muse, pull it off?

Join Mabel and Brooklyn on a fun, behind-the-scenes look into the real world of fashion and what it takes to become a fashion designer.

40 pages. Ages 5 to 8. Published 2020 by Austin Macauley Publishers. Author & Illustrator Stacy Johnson.
