Waterstones Says

Practical pockets triumph over frills and sparkles in this brilliantly joyous picture book about finding a perfect dress that sends a subtly feminist message and celebrates embracing your own dreams.

A funny and frock-filled story for modern girls who don't just want sequins and sparkles on their dresses, from rising star Lily Murray and Waterstones Prize-winning illustrator, Jenny Lovlie.

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. And 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... The hunt is on: will Lucy find the dress of her dreams?

A 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.

“Imaginative, expressive and full of possibility”

We are big fans of Lily Murray's picture books in our house and this one is no different. This collaboration with Jenny Lovelie sees a softer palette than her previous books (the pastels feel perfect for spring!)... More
