Product Description
Dennis is a normal seeming twelve year old boy. He lives with his older brother and father, as their mother walked out a couple of years before. Dennis does have one extraordinary secret though, and that is that he does like looking at women's fashions. Nothing would have gone any further than that until he becomes friends with Lisa, a slightly older schoolgirl. And so for Dennis his life is about to enter a new and challenging path, as he actually tries on dresses, and becomes his alter ego, Denise, and even plays the girl at school.This is a fun and comic tale, but it does have a more sensitive and thoughtful side to it. As Dennis gets into troubles and problems this story helps to remind us all that we are not all the same, and we must show tolerance for others. What will happen to Dennis here, and more importantly what will happen with the football match which could give his school team a chance of glory?
