Praise For The Dress and the Girl

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Together, the carefully crafted text and gorgeous illustrations pair to tell a truly extraordinary tale. A delightful picture book with an important story to be told. Recommended for sharing again and again."


"Morstad's (House of Dreams, 2018, etc.) clean illustrations expertly evoke the era through a nostalgic color palette and the (unnamed) locations through carefully chosen details. The opening and closing spreads echo each other, reinforcing the theme of connection. Immigrant stories are perennially relevant, and the rarely seen 20th-century Greek setting is refreshing."


"The lyrical text and evocative art will make readers linger."


"In perfect juxtaposition, the spare, lyrical text is completed by images that capture time, place, and essence. There is a quiet wisdom to this book that asks us to look around and take note and allow time to work its magic."
