Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress


Morris dreams about space adventures and loves to paint beautiful pictures.  He also loves his preschool classroom’s dress-up center and a wonderful tangerine dress.  The boys won’t let Morris play with them if he’s wearing a dress and the girls try to take it off him.  Sad, Morris fakes a stomachache and stays home for a day before returning to school filled with confidence.  Morris is determined to be true to himself on his own terms.. Melenfant’s charcoal, watercolor, and pastel illustrations complement the text perfectly.--from the publisher
