Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress
A sweetly told story about the courage and creativity it takes to be different.

Morris is a little boy who loves using his imagination. He dreams about having space adventures, paints beautiful pictures and sings the loudest during circle time. 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.
