This beautiful book by the beloved author of the Moffat family books, is about cultural interaction, acceptance, and the value of friendship. The story is about Wanda Petronski, a Polish immigrant who has trouble making friends at school due partly to differences of culture and partly to the shabby blue dress she wears, while insisting that she has 100 beautiful silk and velvet, colorful dresses at home.
