THE HUNDRED DRESSES PART II

GIST

The Hundred Dresses Part II tells us why Wanda Petronski had not been attending school. Her father informed her teacher through a note that his family had decided to move to a big city where no one would bother about their strange and unfamiliar name. On hearing the contents of the note, Maddie and Peggy became anxious as they realized that they would never get a chance to make up with Wanda for teasing and taunting her the way they had. They tried to and meet and reconcile with Wanda by going to Boggins Heights but to their dismay there was no sign of the family. Later, around Christmas time, they were both relieved to learn that Wanda really liked them and she had no hard feelings against them. She had even dedicated one of the hundred drawn dresses to each one of them as their faces were drawn along with the dresses.

Character Sketch of Wanda Petronski
Wanda is depicted as a very talented young lady. She is able to draw a variety of dresses along with the faces of her classmates. She even wins a medal at the drawing contest. She was also a sensitive girl who knew when Peggy hurt her by her rude questions about her dresses, hats and so on.
However, she was mature in her thoughts and forgiving towards Peggy and Maddie. As Peggy in her own words says, Wanda may have got ideas for all those dresses from her taunts. She was thus able to turn her taunts into triumphs. This clearly shows that she is superior in attitude as she is able to think above these petty issues and dwell on things that have far more reaching consequences.

Question.Why was Maddie unable to concentrate on preparing her lessons?

leaving the school for good.

anyone who was nice to her.

Answer. 
Maddie looked at the dresses with vivid colours that Wanda drew. She did not look at the faces. Later, she realised that Wanda had drawn the beautiful dresses for Maddie and Peggy with their faces to match. 

 

Long Answer Questions 

Question. Compare and contrast the characters of Maddie and Peggy.
Answer.
Although Maddie and Peggy were friends, they differed considerably in their attitude towards Wanda. While Peggy took delight in teasing Wanda, Maddie did not quite like it as she too was not a very rich girl. When Miss Mason read Jan Petronski’s letter to the class Maddie was deriding herself for being a coward who did not have the courage to stand up to help a girl who was being ridiculed. Peggy, too, felt that she had contributed to Wanda’s going away but she had no regrets and covered her feelings with pretended casualness. She suggested that they go and meet Wanda at Boggs Heights to which Maddie readily agreed. When the two were unable to meet the Petronski’s, Peggy felt that they had done their part and even thought that she should be given credit for giving Wanda new ideas for her dresses. Maddie on the other hand is penitent and decides never to treat anyone or allow anyone to be treated the way Wanda was.


Question. Wanda was successful in turning her taunts into triumphs. Justify this statement.
Answer.
Wanda was hounded by Peggy and asked the same embarrassing question. She had the same answer. She did not show her anger or irritation at being humiliated. Peggy thought her to be so dumb that she did not even know that she was being made fun of. However, Wanda kept all these taunts to herself and showed her maturity by responding positively and giving it back to her in the best possible way – by beating her in her own game at drawing. When everyone thought Peggy would win the drawing contest, Wanda won it and the admiration of all the students and her teacher. Wanda shows her magnanimity by forgiving Peggy and gifting her a drawing which would constantly remind her of herself and the treatment that was meted out to her. She thus converted her taunts into triumphs.
