Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seymour Chwast celebrates the daily routine of getting dressed in this fittingly whimsical and satisfyingly unique novelty book. Unlike more traditional books on this topic that deal with the how of getting dressed, Get Dressed! instead tackles the why. The text “Get dressed to read about dragons” accompanies an illustration of a boy dressed in a makeshift knight costume. A girl in full floral garb stands in a garden alongside the text “Get dressed to hide.” The book features half and full gatefolds, which foreshadow the items of clothing to be seen and provide surprise reveals on each spread. With a die-cut magnetic closure, even the cover invites readers to peek inside!

Praise for Get Dressed!

“Chwast’s wacky combinations are sure to encourage young fashionistas to be comfortable with their own personal style. Even the cover, designed as a suit jacket that fastens with a magnetic snap, invites readers to open a world of possibilities. A clever, dapper package.”

Kirkus Reviews

"Young children will delight in pointing out which objects don’t necessarily belong with the others."

The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The dress-up theme of this tall-format interactive book from graphic designer Chwast is introduced by a gatefold cover that looks like (and opens like) a man's suit jacket. For a boy and girl just waking up, there's a whole world to explore, but only if they 'Get up and... get dressed!' Each spread contains a page-size flap featuring the clothing needed for a particular activity, but it's clear from the outset that these aren't ordinary activities or outfits. A long-sleeved shirt, funnel, soup pot and lid, and feather gird the boy's loins when it's time to 'Get dressed to read about dragons,' while high-heeled shoes, a dress made of envelopes, boxer shorts, and boots help both siblings 'Get dressed to sing.' With irreverent details in each of Chwast's chalk-outlined illustrations, including a recurring penguin character, it's an entertainingly off-kilter exploration of getting dressed. Ages 2 — 6.
