Publisher Comments:

Open up a fresh and stylish story about growing up and keeping hold of your favorite memories. As the year passes, the narratorand#8217;s favorite dress goes through a series of creative changes, from dress to shirt to tank top to scarf and so on, until all thatand#8217;s left of it is a good memory. Assisted by her patient and crafty mama, the narrator finds that when disaster strikes her favorite things, she doesnand#8217;t need to make mountains out of molehillsand#8212;she and#8220;makes molehills out of mountainsand#8221; instead! Structured around the days of the week, the story is also illustrated to show the passing of the seasons, a perfect complement to the themes of growing older and keeping hold (and letting go) of special mementos.
