But most of all, Morris loves his classroom’s dress-up center — and the tangerine dress. But the children in Morris’s class don’t understand. Dresses, they say, are for girls and astronauts don’t wear dresses so he is not welcome in the spaceship they are building. Warm, dreamy illustrations perfectly capture Morris’s vulnerability and the vibrancy of his imagination.
