The Lavender Blue Dress is the first children's book from the acclaimed indie singer-songwriter Aidan Moffat alongside illustrations by award-winning Emmeline Pidgen. It tells the story of Mabel, a little girl who wants nothing more than a beautiful dress to wear to her Christmas ball. Mabel's family can't afford to get her the lavender blue dress she wants, but can they find another way to send her to the ball in a beautiful gown?

With a three-track CD by Bill Wells and Aidan Moffat and a dust jacket that can be made into a cut-out-and play Mabel doll, this is a book that will not only appeal to Moffat's fan-base, but will find its way into the hearts of children and parents across the world. This sweet tale is perfect bedtime reading, teaching children about the value of friendship and family.

Buyers can request customised signature (by the artist).
