A hilarious body-swap tale by a former Children’s Laureate. One morning, a horrified Bill wakes up in the body of a girl! He’s sent to school in a frilly pink frock with fiddly shell buttons, and finds that life is suddenly very different. The bully whistles at him instead of kicking him; not being a ‘big strong boy’, he isn’t allowed to lift and carry; his schoolwork is supposed to be ultra neat; and – worst of all! – he gets cast in the school play as Lovely Rapunzel, who never gets to say anything! By the time he gets home, the pink frock is covered in mud, and – thank goodness – Bill will never have to wear it again! Educating children about gender roles in a light-hearted way, this book is a hoot from start to finish.
Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Bill’s New Frock.
