The Hundred Dresses, off the page

The Hundred Dresses was a popular pick when my teacher assigned us to read an award-winner, probably because it was one of the shortest books on the list.  Teachers often choose it because it has the perfect example of a bystander in a bullying scenario.  Readers who pick the book for one of those reasons are often pleasantly surprised to find that it’s a really good story that tends to stay with them over time.

The Chicago Tribune just had an article about the book being performed as a play:

school bullying; The Hundred Dresses gets its anti-bullying message across to kids – chicagotribune.com.

The play features music by Ralph Covert, much-loved (especially here in the Chicago area) for his rock music for kids.  This isn’t the first time he’s created songs for a children’s musical; you may have also heard his music for A Nutty Nutcracker Christmas.

Is your school going to see “The Hundred Dresses”?  I’d love to hear your comments!
