Too Purply! by Jean Reidy


Too Purply! by Jean Reidy

What can a girl wear to be super-comfortable? Join in with the sartorial adventures of one snazzy dresser as she discovers that so many clothes are too purply, too prickly, too fancy or too plain! But, of course, there is something that she loves to wear ...and it is just perfect.


'With minimal but humorous text, this picture book is perfect for discerning dressers'
