Publisher's Summary

As the year passes, the narrator's favorite dress goes through a series of creative changes, from dress to shirt to tank top to scarf and so on, until all that's left of it is a good memory. Assisted by her patient and crafty mama, the narrator finds that when disaster strikes her favorite things, she doesn't need to make mountains out of molehills - she makes molehills out of mountains instead!

Structured around the days of the week, the story shows the passing of the seasons, a perfect complement to the themes of growing older and keeping hold (and letting go) of special mementos.

Critic Reviews

"A spunky story about adjusting to change with creativity and style. Tailor-made, so to speak, for the Etsy generation of DIY enthusiasts." ( Publishers Weekly)
"What could have been yet another example of kindergarten consumerism instead becomes one of resourcefulness and resilience." ( New York Times)
"Breezy in style, they smartly stitch each scene of alteration as the not-so-little girl sashays through the days of the week and the seasons. A charming interpretation of an old story that will speak to young fashionistas." ( Kirkus Reviews)
