Review: Yellow Dress Day

Ava loves a pretty frock. She has them in every colour of the rainbow. Every day, when she flings open her bedroom window, she knows in her heart which colour dress she needs to wear today.

When she wears her red dress, things are crackling hot and sunny. When she wears her pink dress, spring is in the air. When she wears her blue dress, snowflakes tumble from the sky and land on Ava's nose.

Today is a windy day. It's yellow dress day, but Ava's yellow dress is nowhere to be found. Can she find an inspired alternative?

A lovely concept for a children's book, kids don't need to be a fashionista to enjoy its virtual romp through the seasons.

Illustrations by Sophie Norsa perfectly complement the vibrant changes in season and the swirling. curling nature of both being a child - and the art of the quick dress change.
