A Huffington Post Best Picture Book of the Year "Morris is a complex character whose creativity and personality shine. . . . Sensitive and reassuring." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "[R]ather than presenting an overt message about gender identity, the book provides a subtle and refreshing glimpse at a boy who simply likes to dress up." -- School Library Journal "Baldacchino doesn't sugar-coat the teasing and isolation Morris endures. . . . Malenfant showcases Morris's full emotional spectrum." -- Publishers Weekly "Unlike some more messagey titles on the subject, this one provides Morris with a personality beyond his dress-loving nature, making him enjoyable literary company." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Baldacchino's gentle story sensitively depicts gender nonconforming children, offering them reassurance and, one hopes, acceptance by introducing other children to the concept." -- Booklist
"Morris likes lots of things about school. He likes to paint. He likes to do puzzles. He likes the apple juice at snack time and singing the loudest during circle time. Most of all, Morris likes the dress-up center. And the tangerine dress." -- from the book

Morris Micklewhite wore a tangerine dress. One day he was going to school, and kids started being mean to him because he was wearing a dress. He would pretend he could not hear them but he did. Becky tried to pull off the dress from the back and the boys would not let him on their spaceship.
The author wrote this book because she wants to make a point to not bully people. I like this book because it was a good lesson to teach and it talks about judging people. My favorite thing about the book is when Morris drew a picture from his mind.
I recommend this book because the book is easy, and you cannot tell what is going to happen next.
It is a really good book and you should read it.
