Dear 100 Hour Board,

I was wondering if you could help me find the name of a certain picture book? It was published at least 15 years ago, and is about a queen, or other nobility, who likes to wear the most beautiful dresses (the dresses are from the 1700s). Eventually she has the tailor cut out the sky and make a dress with that. Her people get very depressed, but she does not care until her dress starts to rain with thunder and lightning and then she throws the sky back.

A: Dear CurlyTop,

I'm guessing it's 1986's The Queen Who Stole the Sky by Jennifer Garrett.
