JUVENILE FICTION / Clothing & Dress
A funny, fashion-forward picture book with a subtle feminist undertone that celebrates the joy of pockets and the inquisitive, adventurous spirit of all young children. Lucy and Aunt Augusta are dress shopping. And, at the Fabulous Fashion Store, there are dresses to suit just about everyone. There are fancy dresses, frilly dresses, stripy dresses, silly dresses, sun dresses, fun dresses, blue dresses, green... But Lucy doesn't care about frills or lace. She wants a dress WITH POCKETS. And as she wades through the titchy dresses, witchy dresses, very, very itchy dresses, she starts to worry about where she's going to put her leaves, nettles, and delicate petals, her magical spells and beautiful shells. The hunt is on: will Lucy find the dress of her dreams? A fantastic, funny, frock-filled story for modern children who don't just want sequins and sparkles on their dresses, from rising star Lily Murray and Waterstones Prize-winning illustrator, Jenny Lovlie.

Lily Murray is a freelance writer who has been writing and editing children's books for over fifteen years. She has written a number of children's books, both fiction and nonfiction, including Hello, Hot Dog!, Dinosaur Department Store, Monet's Cat and Dinosaurium. Jenny Løvlie grew up in Northern Norway on Ekkerøy, a tiny peninsula sticking out into the Barents Sea, where she was the first child to be born in twelve years. Jenny studied Illustration and Animation at Kingston University in London, and graduated with a BA Hons in 2014. She draws inspiration from the wild landscapes of Scandinavia, nordic folklore and Scandinavian design. In 2019, Jenny won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for best illustrated book for The Girls, written by Lauren Ace. Her favourite things are going on adventures in her van, camping, bird-watching, cooking and reading.
