The Boy in the Dress is the story of Dennis, a 12 year old boy who lives in an ordinary house, in an ordinary street, in an ordinary town, but he feels different. His mum has gone off with a roofer and he lives with his dad and brother – everything is boring and grey. Dennis feels like he wants to escape to some sort of magical world, and discovers it in the most unexpected place – Raj’s newsagent.

A chance view of Kate Moss on the cover of a fashion magazine introduces Dennis to a whole new world of colour and creativity. Thankfully he has an ally in Lisa, the coolest girl in school who decides to teach him everything she knows about the world of fashion and clothes. Dennis is enthralled, and after a little persuasion from Lisa tries on a dress she has created, soon they decide to try and pass Dennis off as “Denise”, Lisa’s French pen pal. But can a boy wear a dress, and what will the Headmaster Mr Hawthorn, his Dad, his best friend Darvesh and his school football team-mates think if they find out?
