A Pattern for Pepper
by Julie Kraulis (Author / Illustrator)

Booktalk: Pepper is getting a dress made for a special occasion. It’s the first dress that has ever been made just for her, and she wants it to be perfect. But what pattern is right for her? Pepper is particular, and nothing works at first. Dotted Swiss? Too plain. Houndstooth? Not enough color. Pinstripe? Too glum. As Pepper learns about each fabric, she finds a reason why it’s just not the one. Will Pepper ever be able to find the perfect pattern?

Snippet: “What pattern is your suit?” Pepper asks.

“Ah, this is tartan, It comes from Scotland and is woven with wool in checked patterns. Tartan is used for clothing, hats and even bagpipes.

“Oh, no. Bagpipes are just TOO LOUD! No thank you,” says Pepper.
