The Dress in the Window by author Robert Tregoning and ill. Pippa Curnick


One day a boy is walking past a second-hand shop when he sees a dress. It’s no ordinary dress – it’s glittering, sparking, dazzling, and red. For the boy it’s love at first sight.

His mum suggests he do some odd jobs to save the necessary money, but what if someone else buys it first? An affirming, uplifting tale about love, acceptance, and being true to yourself.


The Dress in the Window by Robert Tregoning is a joyous tale of self expression and acceptance. Illustrated by acclaimed illustrator Pippa Curnick, this book tells the story of a young boy who falls in love with a sparkling red dress in the window of a charity shop and his efforts to raise enough money to buy it with the support of his mum and local community.

Inspired in part by an experience Tregoning’s partner had when he was young, The Dress in the Window is a powerful celebration of being true to yourself.
