Morris has a great imagination. He paints amazing pictures and he loves his classroom's dress-up center, especially the tangerine dress. It reminds him of tigers, the sun, and his mother's hair. The other children don't understand and tease Morris. But, inspired by a dream, Morris paints a fantastic picture, and when he takes it to school and shares it with his classmates everything begins to change for the better. Recommended for grades PreK - 3rd.
