Summary
As a poor immigrant, a young girl is teased about wearing the same faded dress to school everyday and so tells a great lie that she has one hundred dresses at her home, yet when the fib results in even more teasing, an event suddenly takes place that teaches them all an important lesson about friendship and compassion. A Newbery Honor Book.
Amazon.com description: Product 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." This powerful, timeless story has been reissued with a new letter from the author’s daughter Helena Estes, and with the Caldecott artist Louis Slobodkin’s original artwork in beautifully restored color.
