Pub. Date:
It takes a special kind of dress to get Lindsay to change her ways in this lyrical tale told with sprightly illustrations.Slish — the dress slid off its hanger. Lindsay read the little tag inside: "Made in Bora-Bora for you."Fabulous Aunt Fiona is throwing an end-of-the-summer, snazzy, ritzy party, and Lindsay can't wait to go. There’s just one hitch: she has to wear a dress, and Lindsay never ever ever wears a dress. She wears her baggy shorts to run on the beach. She wears her patch overalls to jump in piles of leaves. But that's before Lindsay sees a wonderful sundress shaped like a wedge of pie, with a parrot painted on front that seems to wink at her. If Lindsay goes to the party in a dress from a magical island far away, who can predict what will happen?
