Synopsis

Bill's New Frock by Anne Fine

A classic children's story from one of our best-loved authors, former Children's Laureate Anne Fine. The Modern Classics edition features new illustrations and bonus material. Bill Simpson wakes up to find he's a girl, and worse, his mother makes him wear a frilly pink dress to school. How on earth is he going to survive a whole day like this? Everything just seems to be different for girls . . . Perfect for readers aged 7 years and up and fans of The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams. Anne Fine's fun school stories have been delighting children for more than 20 years, winning her awards such as the Smarties Book Award and Carnegie Medal along the way.
