Illustrator – Igor Kuprin

Picture Book

Felix loves his big sister’s dresses, and especially skirts. When he wants to wear a red skirt on his first day of school, his parents suggest maybe pants would be best as some people won’t understand.

When Felix does get to wear his skirt to school, he’s the happiest he’s been. But the other kids laugh and the boys won’t play with him anymore.

Felix’s dad has the perfect solution. He wears his own skirt when he takes Felix to school. The parents and other children are so surprised. But it’s just the thing Felix needed to help his self-confidence and others intolerance.
