Lucy and Aunt Augusta are dress shopping. And, at the Fabulous Fashion Store, there are dresses to suit just about everyone. There are fancy dresses, frilly dresses, stripy dresses, silly dresses, sun dresses, fun dresses, blue dresses, green. . . But Lucy doesn't care about frills or lace. She wants a dress WITH POCKETS. Because pockets lead to adventures... 

Why we love this book: 

This fashion-forward story is a brilliant book that challenges gender stereotypes with its subtle feminist undertone. It’s not that Lucy has a problem with wearing dresses, she just needs somewhere to put all the things she finds during her adventures. It’s the perfect book to demonstrate the importance of asserting your needs, looking past the sequins and sparkles, and making sure the things you own work for you rather than against you.

About the author:

Lily Murray grew up in the wilds of snowy nowhere, spending much of her time making up stories. She has continued to do this in her adult life, and now writes both fiction and non-fiction books for children. Her titles include big books about dinosaurs, rhyming books about dinosaurs and stories about escapee hot dogs.

About the illustrator:

Jenny Løvlie grew up in Northern-Norway on Ekkerøy, a tiny peninsula sticking out into the Barents Sea, where she was the first child to be born in 12 years. Her love of nature shines through her work and she draws inspiration from the wild landscapes of Scandinavia, nordic folklore and Scandinavian design. Jenny’s favourite things are going on adventures in the great outdoors, camping, bird-watching, cooking and reading.
