Irene Bobbin's mother has made the most beautiful dress in the world for the duchess, but is too ill to deliver it for tonight's ball. So brave Irene - a fan of snow - dresses warmly, packages up the dress and heads out into a raging storm. The deep snow and the howling wind have other ideas, however, driving the indomitable girl along and snatching the parcel from her determined grasp: Irene does not give up, and will face several snowy disasters before her bravery finally pays off in an evening she'll never forget. "Brave Irene" displays William Steig's customary enchanting illustrations and witty writing in this story of determination and adventure.

My two-year old daughter is amazingly well-read. I picked up this book for her birthday because her name is Irene. Despite how long it is compared to other books in her library, she will snuggle up next to Mom or Dad and listen to the entire thing---which is impressive. The illustrations capture her attention, and the story has more plot to it than most written for toddlers. It's a wonderful story about a dressmaker's daughter, filled with great descriptive winter scenes and a sweet ending. Now another favorite from William Steig, author of Shrek and Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, that we keep next to her bed for nighttime reading.
