The Hundred Dresses 1945 Honor Book ******

Wanda lives on the wrong side of town and wears the same dress every day. To make things worse she tells everyone that she 100 dresses at home, which makes her the brunt of popular Peggy's jokes. While Maddie doesn't tease Wanda, she doesn't stand up for her either.

I loved this book as a child. When I first read it I felt like screaming at Wanda, "Can't you see you are making things worse?" But when the mystery is solved I felt like running to Wanda and giving her a big hug. This is a wonderful book for children to see that everyone is deserving of friendship.
