Not in that Dress, Princess
Author(s): Wendy Meddour; Cindy Wume (Illustrator)
In a spirited challenge to gender stereotyping, Princess Bess shows that THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN'T DO IN A DRESS!
The wacky tale of a princess who rebels against doing things that will spoil her beautiful dress. She ends up doing so many fantastic things in her dress that her brothers, the princes, want to have dresses too!
Once there was a girl called Bess
Who HATED being a princess …
… she wants to have fun and do all sorts of things, only to be told by the Queen that "a Princess must always impress … There are things we DON'T DO in a dress."
But her brothers, the princes, can get as messy as they like. Bess is not going to put up with this. She sets out to show everyone that there is NOTHING she can't do in her dress:
"I can go on a safari in my dress,
I can eat calamari in my dress,
I can brush a lion's mane
I can fly an aeroplane,
I can drive this Ferrari in my dress!"
By the end, Bess has done so many amazing things in her dress that her brothers the princes ask the Queen if they too can dress like a Princess!
