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."

Clever illustrations and playful imagination takes this far beyond the territory of basic concept books while still building clothing-related vocabulary. Toddlerific and fun.
