A Dress with Pockets (Hardcover)
A funny and frock-filled story for modern children who might want sequins and sparkles on their dresses—but also want pockets!
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, sundresses, fun dresses, blue dresses, green… But Lucy doesn't care about frills or lace. She wants a dress WITH POCKETS. And as she wades through the swishy 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. The hunt is on: will Lucy find the dress of her dreams?
