Not in That Dress, Princess!

 
By Wendy Meddour
Illustrated by Cindy Wume

In a spirited challenge to gender stereotyping, Princess Bess shows that THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN’T DO IN A DRESS!

Once there was a girl called Bess who hated being a princess...For while her brother can do anything they want, the princess is stuck inside the palace in her dress.

"Can I climb a tree?"

"NOT IN THAT DRESS!"

But..."Just watch me" says the princess, she skips up a mountain, dance with a wizard, flies a plane, meets wild animals - and proves to everyone that THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN'T DO IN A DRESS!
