Description

This 1945 Newbery Honor book, The Hundred Dresses is a 1944 children's book by Eleanor Estes, illustrated by Louis Slobodkin. In the book, a young Polish girl named Wanda Petronski goes to a school in an American town, where the other children see her as "different" and mock her. This book has been translated in Chinese. 

Note: We would recommend this title for children who has achieved an intermediate to advance level of Chinese. Available in paperback, simplified Chinese. No coloured pictures as this is a short novel.

The Story

The book centers on Wanda Petronski, a poor and friendless Polish-American girl. Her teacher, outwardly kind, puts her in the worst seat in the classroom and she does not say anything when her schoolmates tease her. One day, after Wanda's classmates laugh at her funny last name and the faded blue dress she wears to school every day, Wanda claims to own one hundred dresses, all lined up in her closet at her worn-down house. This outrageous and obvious lie becomes a game, as the girls in her class corner her every day before school, demanding that she describe all of her dresses for them. She is mocked, and her father, Mr. Petronski, decides that she must leave that school.

The teacher holds a drawing contest in which the girls are to draw dresses of their own design. Wanda enters and submits one hundred beautiful designs. Her classmates are in awe of her talent and realize that these were her hundred dresses. Unfortunately, she has already moved away and does not realize she won the contest.

The students who teased her feel remorse and want her to know this, but they are not sure how. They decide to write her an apology letter and send it to her old address, hoping the post office can forward it. Read the book to find out what happened...

《一百条裙子》作者是用心灵写作,而绘者更是给人以温暖和共鸣。
——《号角书评》
一本为小学女生量身订做的书籍,她们的那些“小女孩脾气”会被暴露无疑。
——亚马逊网站
这《一百条裙子》可能会取代许多同类书的益,而且会经久不衰。
——《星期六回顾》
《一百条裙子》荣获纽伯德儿童文学奖银奖。这《一百条裙子》的叙述方式很特别,主人公旺达·佩特罗斯基一直没有正面和我们接触,在作者淡淡的叙述里,在对玛蒂埃的细膩的心理描述中旺达的形象渐渐丰满起来。我们追随着玛蒂埃“关切”的目光,她的思想,她的微妙的心路历程,见到了一个真实的旺达,倔强而孤独地存在,有憧憬和美好的愿望,安静,勤劳朴实,爱干净,爱美、聪明、执著、大度的旺达。
 

作者简介

作者:(美国)埃莉诺·埃斯特斯 译者:袁颖 插图作者:(美国)路易斯·斯洛博德金

埃莉诺·埃斯特斯是美国著名的儿童文学作家。她曾经担任儿童图书馆管理员的工作,直到1941年,她的首部小说《莫法特一家》出版并荣获纽伯瑞儿童文学奖银奖后,她才决定开始写作生涯。在20世纪初期,由于美国制定了“禁止使用童工、改善儿童教育环境”的法律,儿童的地位有了显著的提高,儿童文学作品也逐渐开始尊重儿童的个性以及儿童成长的自由。埃莉诺的作品也受到时代背景的影响,所以她笔下的人物都有着鲜明的个性,并且都热爱自由,能够勇敢地独立面对任何成长中的问题与困境。她所描述的人物通常都能在她的生活中找到原型,所以她的作品十分贴近生活。直到今天,她的作品被世界各国的小读者所津津乐道,永远也不会因为时间的流逝而褪色。
