This sparkling picture-book debut for author-illustrator Marthe Jocelyn features a likable five-year-old heroine with a daily problem that troubles readers of all ages: She can't decide what to wear. Hannah's mother loves to sew, so Hannah has seven of the most beautiful dresses in the world. It's just so hard to choose! With her faithful elephantine companion at her side, Hannah cleverly works out a system-one dress for each day of the week. But when her birthday comes along, she's stuck again. Is any one dress special enough? How about all seven at once?

Readers will love learning colors, days of the week, and problem-solving skills with Hannah and her candy-bright wardrobe. Each tiny button, flouncing petticoat, and miniature wire hanger of the irresistibly detailed collage illustrations will be appreciated by young girls and their mothers. And the silly surprise ending-when Hannah permanently opts for black pants-will bring giggles as well as smiles of recognition and approval!
