Like most young girls, Aree likes fine clothing and jewelry. But she is just a wee bit spoiled and has more dresses and accessories than she needs. So when word comes of a dance to be held in the next village, Aree can't make up her mind: Now I can show off my fine clothes! But which color shall I wear? The pink, the fuchsia, the scarlet? The sky blue or aquamarine? Maybe violet? Deep purple? Magenta? Maybe chartreuse? Or emerald green?

From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3AAn experienced storyteller has set an old cautionary tale from Thailand in modern dress. Aree's parents shower their daughter with brilliant silk dresses and lovely jewels. A dance held in a nearby village offers Aree a chance to display her sumptuous wardrobe. Determined to be the most beautiful girl there, she cannot decide upon one dress or one jewel, so she ends up wearing all of them. She is so weighed down with layers of finery that she cannot keep up with her friends as they walk over the hill to the dance. When they suggest that she remove some garments, she accuses them of jealousy. In a version collected in Thailand by Kermit Krueger and retold in his collection The Serpent Prince (World, 1969; o.p.), the vain, foolish girl dies of exhaustion. MacDonald's version allows her to learn her lesson and live to practice voluntary simplicity. The story is told in rhythmic, cadenced sentences, ideal for reading aloud. The illustrations substitute modern rural Thailand for the archaic setting of the original tale and depict the characters as somewhat stylized figures dressed in brightly colored Thai silks. An author's note acknowledges Krueger's retelling, puts the tale in cultural context, and suggests strategies for telling it. The text is printed in Thai at the bottom of each page. Art and narrative create an appealing blend of ancient and contemporary wisdom.AMargaret A. Chang, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
