"My name is Alison, and I DON'T want to wear a dress."
The Short Book is an endearing story about a little girl that doesn't want to wear a dress. Her exasperated mother asks her what if an astronaut, a lion tamer, or other unlikely professionals wore shorts... The little girl won't budge, she only wants to wear shorts! But then Aunt Betty Mae comes to take the little girl for "a very nice lunch." Who will emerge victorious in this test of wills, Alison or Mom?
A charming story with equally endearing illustrations and quirky animations. After reading The Short Book, you will agree that Charles Somerville truly is a gifted storyteller and illustrator.
