Welcome to the Blog Tour for Fred Gets Dressed by Peter Brown! I am so delighted to part of this tour as this book sounds (and looks) hilarious! Fred doesn’t want to get dressed and that leads to hilarious situations.
For today’s tour stop I got an excerpt, a giveaway, and of course book/author information. Also be sure to check the schedule to find out which awesome bloggers are also participating in this tour!
Let’s get started~
From a New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott-honor winning artist comes an exuberant illustrated story about playing dress up, having fun, and feeling free.
The boy loves to be naked. He romps around his house naked and wild and free. Until he romps into his parents’ closet and is inspired to get dressed. First he tries on his dad’s clothes, but they don’t fit well. Then he tries on his mom’s clothes, and wow! The boy looks great. He looks through his mom’s jewelry and makeup and tries that on, too. When he’s discovered by his mother and father, the whole family (including the dog!) get in on the fun, and they all get dressed together.
This charming and humorous story was inspired by bestselling and award-winning author Peter Brown’s own childhood, and highlights nontraditional gender roles and self-expression.
