CHAPTER 1

I'm different! I'm getting a big front tooth. What's different about you?

We're all different sizes at school. Look how big Greg is. Look how small Libby is. And I'm right in-between.

But at home, I'm the biggest kid.

My mother and my brothers all have blond hair. My father and my sister have brown hair. Why am I different? My hair is red.

I can't eat chocolate or shrimp or clams.

If I ate them, I'd feel sick.

I wonder if they taste as good as people say.

I don't like being different about eating.

People can do different things.

You draw better pictures than I do.

I can write better than you.

That's how I'm different.

Charlie's fastest with puzzles.

Cindy can whistle. And remember how good Kearsten is at cutting out snowflakes?

Everyone wanted to dress up like a ghost for the Halloween parade.

I like to be different.

My father helped me—I was a robot.

I was different, all right.
