Here Comes the Brideby Beatrice Masini, Anna Laura Cantone
Filomena is a seamstress who spends her days creating gorgeous wedding dresses for many lovely brides. And when it’s finally her turn to be the one to walk down the aisle, she can hardly contain herself. She gets right to work, putting her heart and soul into making her dress. But Filomena gets carried away. She adds so many frills, feathers, and lace that her groom barely recognizes the girl he loves. Here Comes the Bride is a hilarious story about staying true to your inner beauty. Accompanied by the lively paintings of Anna Laura Cantone, this special story highlights the age-old truth that the dress does not make the lady.
Here Comes the Bride was originally published in Italian as Una sposa buffa, buffisima, bellisima by Arka. It was nominated for the White Ravens award in 2001 and named Andersen Award Best Picture Book in 2003.
