Summary

A girl cannot decide which of her many silken dresses and lavish jewels to wear to the dance, so she wears them all.

Like most young girls, Aree likes fine clothing and jewelry. But she is just a wee bit spoiled and has more fine dresses and accessories than she needs. So when word comes of a dance to be held in the next village, Aree can't make up her mind. Racked by indecision, Aree decides to wear her full wardrobe, until she learns that excess can be a burden, and that impressing friends is not the same as keeping them.

Margaret Read MacDonald employs her trademark energy, vitality, and wit. To complement the text given in both English and Thai, Yvonne Davis's brilliant illustrations—done in gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil— capture the palette of fabrics and silks for which the Pu-Thai people in northeastern Thailand are so famous today. This legend from Thailand will teach readers the importance of caring, respect and responsibility.
