Join us for a book discussion at the Magnolia Branch for ages 8-11. This month’s title is "The Hundred Dresses" by Eleanor Estes. Description:
Eleanor Estes' "The Hundred Dresses" won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since.
Wanda Petronski is a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn't and bullies her for it. When the other kids realize their mistake, it's too late to apologize.
