Eleanor Estes's The Hundred Dresses won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since. At the heart of the story is Wanda Petronski, a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn't and bullies her mercilessly. The class feels terrible when Wanda is pulled out of the school, but by that time it's too late for apologies. Maddie, one of Wanda's classmates, ultimately decides that she is "never going to stand by and say nothing again."

"The Hundred Dresses" is said to be for children in Grades 1-6. I read it aloud to my 5 year old and I will say it was a little advanced for her age level. Maddie was a conscientious student who did not enjoy hurting others but she had been a mute spectator when Peggy was making fun of Wanda's hundred dresses.

In this article, you will be reading the hundred dresses summary. Eleanor Estes is the writer of The Hundred Dresses story.
