Opinion

From Library Staff

How can a boy who loves dress up, especially a bright orange dress that swishes and click-clacking heeled shoes, cope when his classmates are mean to him because of his wardrobe choices?

2015 Honor

Morris loves the tangerine dress in the dress-up center at school, but he must overcome biases and occasional cruelty at school.

This is a darling story! Morris wants to be himself and make friends at school-a hard task sometimes. Baldacchino gives a charming solution that is entirely believable.

A strong message of support and inclusion wrapped in a visually enthralling work of swirl and colour. Art, imagination and love all play a part in encouraging the main character in his pursuit of what makes him happy. Recommended.

He was a boy and I never knew that because he looked like a girl. Why did her wear a dress? Fatima

Don't miss Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress! This title beautifully examines gender sterotypes and roles, while telling an inspiring story of Morris and his tangerine dress. Great for classroom read alouds on bullying, individuality, and other social-emotional topics.
