Hardcover Copy of "The Hundred Dresses"

Wanda Petronski wears the same faded blue dress to school every day - yet she says she has one hundred dresses in her closet "all lined up."

The girls at school tease her mercilessly...but her secret has yet to come out.

Written in 1944, this timeless story offers beautiful messages about friendship, forgiveness, peer pressure, and compassion.

The Saturday Review wrote that, "THE HUNDRED DRESSES will take its place with the books that endure" -- and we wholeheartedly agree.

My young daughters (ages 7, 5, and 2 at the time of reading) were captivated by the plot and characters. I am certain that they will not soon forget this tale and the lovely lessons it espouses.
