Description

Eleanor Estes’s The Hundred Dresses won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since. At the heart of the story is Wanda Petronski, a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn’t and bullies her mercilessly. The class feels terrible when Wanda is pulled out of the school, but by that time it’s too late for apologies. Maddie, one of Wanda’s classmates, ultimately decides that she is "never going to stand by and say nothing again."

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 01, 2004 – Classic titles return in time for the gift-giving season. For a new generation of readers, Eleanor Estes's long-treasured title, The Hundred Dresses (1944), illus. by Louis Slobodkin, appears in its 60th anniversary finery with newly "restored color" in the artwork. Wanda faces mockery at school, both because of her "funny" last name (Petron-ski) and her claims that she has 100 dresses at home even though she wears the same one to school each day. .

Customer Reviews

Loved this book! Get it!

I remember reading this in third grade. It's about a poor little girl that only has one outfit. A dress.
She gets picked on. She tells the people picking on her that she has one hundred dresses. They didn't believe her.
Then her teacher held a drawing contests. All the girls drew dresses.The whole wall was full of dresses done by the little girl. The bullies felt bad because she had moved away and they wanted to apoligize

Great book

I love this book and if you like short chapter books, this is the book for you.

The Hundred Dresses

This book was great! It realy touched my heart, and taught me a lesson. It tought me that even if you didn’t say anything mean, you are being even more mean to the person that is being bulied by not standing up for them.
