Very pretty, sensible nine-year-old has barely worn gorgeous pink designer bridesmaid’s dress with matching accessories. Will attend any wedding ceremony and add that perfect stylish touch to your wedding photos. Very small rental fee for one day. Dear Matilda, I’m going to be married at St John’s Church this coming Saturday 29 May at 12 noon. My fiancé and I think it would be delightful to have a bridesmaid in such a pretty frock. Would you and your mother like to come round to my house, 37 Ringstead Gardens, one day after school so we can discuss it? Yours sincerely, Iris May Bloomfieldshow more

Flap copy

‘This story starts with a dress . . .’ Tilly’s got a whole wardrobe full of bridesmaid’s dresses – a pale pink one, a blue one, even a red one with a soft white trim. The only problem is, they’re all in her imagination. In real life, it’s Tilly’s best friend Matty who has the beautiful pink dress to wear at the perfect white wedding. Tilly can’t help being a teeny tiny bit jealous – more than anything in the world, she would love to be a bridesmaid at her own mum and dad’s wedding. But that isn't going happen. In fact, Tilly’s worried she’s never going to get to be a bridesmaid. So, she decides to take matters into her own hands – and offers her bridesmaid’s services up for hire . . . A wonderfully warm and moving story about the power of friendship, from the mega-bestselling author of The Worst Thing About My Sister. Full of beautiful illustrations by much-loved illustrator Nick Sharratt.show more
