Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine DressBook - 2014
From Library Staff
Challenged, but retained at the Forest Hills Public School District in Ada Township (MI), despite a parent's concern that the "book is not just talking about accepting another viewpoint, it's promoting another life." The children's book is about a boy who likes to wear dresses to school.
Morris is teased by the other children in his class for wanting to wear the tangerine dress from his classroom's dress-up centre. But inspired by a dream, Morris paints a fantastic picture and everything begins to change when he takes it to school.
