Never out of print since its 1944 publication, this tender story offers readers of all ages a timeless message of compassion and understanding. At its heart is Wanda Petronski, an immigrant girl in an American school, who is ridiculed for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. When she tells her classmates that she has one hundred dresses at home, she unwittingly triggers a game of teasing that eventually ends in a lesson for all.
In restoring the reproduction of Louis Slobodkin's artwork, this new edition recaptures the original vivid color. And to celebrate the book's enhanced beauty, Helena Estes, the daughter of the author, has written a new letter to readers about the true story behind "The Hundred Dresses."

Lovely

5

Delightful children's classic which would make an excellent gift for children aged 7-10, especially girls (but by no means necessarily). Goes well with Erin McKean's illustrated the one hundred dresses (inspired bu this) which is for adults but the pictures (rather than text) and ideas of the dresses being an expression work well.
