The Hundred Dresses

Eleanor Estes. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P, $16 (80pp) ISBN 978-0-15-205170-9

Classic titles return in time for the gift-giving season. For a new generation of readers, Eleanor Estes's long-treasured title, The Hundred Dresses (1944), illus. by Louis Slobodkin, appears in its 60th anniversary finery with newly ""restored color"" in the artwork. Wanda faces mockery at school, both because of her ""funny"" last name (Petron-ski) and her claims that she has 100 dresses at home even though she wears the same one to school each day. .
