Synopsis: Children's picture book. Ages 4-8.
Minnie's family doesn't approve of her. That's because they are all stuffed shirts - literally! And Minnie herself is a dress. She decides to have a tea party. Her prim and proper family maintains a stiff composure as Minnie's wacky pets have their own tea party underfoot. The jumble of disorder threatens at every turn. Will anyone mention the messy living room?
This book ingeniously combines photographs of vintage clothing and illustrations to create a uniquely imaginative view of a child's world.
