Title: The Dress and the Girl


I am a HUGE fan of Julie Morstad's illustrations.  She creates worlds that, to me, are so beautiful and endearing, and always draw me in.  The story that the pictures tell is also beautifully done, and is a reminder of how precious each day is, and all the moments that fill them.

Praise For…

"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."

— School Library Journal

"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."

— Kirkus Reviews

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

— Publishers Weekly

"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."
