The Lovereading4Kids comment

When Clara Button is invited to a wedding she and her brother Ollie think hard about what they would like to wear! Luckily, both are very creative and, after some catastrophes, each of them comes up with the perfect – if unusual – outfit for the day! Clara’s creativity provides a wonderful launch pad for all children to think about inventing their own look!


Clara Button and the Wedding Day Surprise by Amy de la Haye

Clara Button returns - alongside her brother Ollie - in another charming and beautifully illustrated story. After the postman delivers their invitation to a wedding, Clara and Ollie begin careful preparations. Clara imagines what the bride might wear, and might have worn in the past, but disaster strikes the night before the big event! Can Ollie and his inventions - and a visit to the haberdashery - save the day? Playful and whimsical while packed with beautiful details from the V&A, this wonderful story is sure to enthrall and enchant.
