The Pink Dress
Item No.: 151226


gift wrap?: 

Written and illustrated by Leslie Kitashima-Gray Tsuki, a young Japanese American girl from Los Angeles is taken with her family to a camp in Colorado. When the camp authorities decree that all graduating junior high schoolers must wear green to the ceremony, Tsuki decides to wear her sister's pink dress to prove she is not an "ant", but an individual.

This story is based on the true experience of the author's mother who was incarcerated in Amache, one of America's concentration camps during World War II. The author, also a visual artist and puppeteer, created an acclaimed puppet theatre production of this story which premiered at the Museum in 2005.

Hardbound: 66 pp.
