A Dress with Pockets by Lily Murray & Jenny Løvlie
Lucy and Aunt Augusta are dress shopping and at the Fabulous Fashion Store there are dresses to suit just about everyone. There are fancy dresses, frilly dresses, stripy dresses, silly dresses, sun dresses, fun dresses, blue dresses, green…
But Lucy doesn't care about frills or lace.
She wants a dress WITH POCKETS.
As she wades through the titchy dresses, witchy dresses, very, very itchy dresses, she starts to worry about where she's going to put her leaves, and nettles, and delicate petals, her magical spells and beautiful shells...
This lighthearted story with a subtle feminist undertone that celebrates the joy of pockets, and how they can unleash the inquisitive, adventurous spirit of all young children and grown-up girls too!
A funny, frock-filled story from rising star Lily Murray and Waterstones Prize-winning illustrator, Jenny Løvlie.
