"An in-depth, inventive look at how we dress all over the world, profiling a huge variety of clothes, celebrating cultural diversity and exploring technology and recycling. Wittily illustrated by Damon herself, there’s little like it on the market."
Fiona Noble - The Bookseller
"With bright, personable illustrations, and an eclectic gathering of information, this is a unique and quirky book. Highly recommended."
"A fascinating overview that also encourages a look into the culture of various countries, with a huge variety of clothes included and it inevitably leads to questions about why people dress as they do, encouraging children to delve further. The detailed illustrations show detail of the areas as well as the clothes, giving a good cultural insight."
