Dress Up and Let's Have a Party
John and his friends come together for a party, using the everyday things around them to construct inventive costumes on the spot. Pots and pans, an empty soap box, your mother's clothes--these are all things you can wear to a dress-up party! Playing dress-up is a way to be a new self and to imagine for a moment that you are different from who you really are. It's a way to be extravagant or silly, a way to surprise yourself and have a great time!
Written by the prolific and beloved Remy Charlip, Dress Up and Let's Have a Party is a clever, playful reminder that the potential for fun is always at hand. Originally published in the United States in 1956, Dress Up and Let's Have A Party was his first book.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"Decked out in his mother's pots and pans while she bakes a cake, John is inspired to ask his friends to come to his party in costume -- and we wait with him to see what they'll be wearing when, at the turn of the page, they come through the door. No dullards here: a carton on the street turns Hans into a special delivery package; a ball of string makes Vera a meatball covered with spaghetti. The final surprise comes when John carries in the cake, with the single word happy visible. In Charlip territory, nothing is all spelled out."--The Horn Book
