The first of its kind, this childrens book lovingly deals with the subject of gender identity. The main character is a young boy who refers to himself as she. She has a facination with fantastical dresses that she imagines up. The parents remind her that she is a boy and "BOYS DO NOT WEAR DRESSES". She soon finds a new friend busy at work on a sewing machine. She tells the new friend of her imaginative dress concepts which leads to a magnificent collaboration and the beginning of a beautiful friendship. For the first time she is accepted for who she is. This book is a beautiful example of the beauty of childhood imagination and more importantly the often fleeting childhood practice of tolerance.
