Patterns! Patterns! Patterns everywhere! What are the names and stories of the patterns you see everyday? Explore with Julie Kraulis as you create a quilt from your favourite fabric picks.
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?
Author-illustrator Julie Kraulis lives and works in Toronto, but her heart belongs to the world. She developed her wanderlust growing up in a few different places, and her travels always bring new inspiration. Julie is a stop and smell the roses kind of gal who loves to create. This is her fourth picture book; she is also the author and illustrator of Whimsy’s Heavy Things, An Armadillo in Paris and An Armadillo in New York.
