In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.
Excited to share this novel. It deserves a share. An example of a “diverse” book. What a celebration of interests and support of differences, powerful book.
The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams, illustrated by Quentin Blake – Realistic Fiction, 4th grade and up – Ok, there is a boy in a dress. And in certain communities, there might be some issues having this book in your library collection. Now that I’ve stated this, WOW. This is a hilarious, touching book about a boy who finds that dressing up is fun and fashion is fascinating. When he makes a friend who has the same passion, trouble begins. Really enjoyed the twists and turns of this book and know it will open the mind of boys and girls about gender roles and tolerance. I chose to read this to my son (he received the book as a gift) and was quite pleased with the discussions we had during the book. I loved reading a book that had ups, downs, comedy and drama combined. I know many will love this! … note to self, must read more David Walliams books! Goodreads Summary: “The sparkling debut children’s novel from David Walliams, co-creator and co-star of the multi-award-winning Little Britain. Dennis was different. Why was he different, you ask? Well, a small clue might be in the title of this book! Charming, surprising and hilarious — The Boy in the Dress is everything you would expect from the co-creator of Little Britain. David Walliams’s beautiful first novel will touch the hearts (and funny bones) of children and adults alike.”
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
