Barbie #1: “Fashion Superstar”by Sarah Kuhn
The #1 doll in the world meets the world of high fashion in her first, original graphic novel! Barbie is facing the same problems every young person is facing today—figuring out how to choose a career, in an economic environment that is becoming increasingly difficult for anyone to find a job. But Barbie is nothing if not optimistic and determined. Her interest in clothes leads her to seek employment in the highly competitive world of fashion. But as what? A model? A designer? Or something she never even dreamed of? As Barbie pursues her dream, she meets a diverse bunch of all-new friends that can help her… and some that may actually try to end her fashion career before it even starts!
