This is a funny book with great illustrations. But the book has an important message for all children but especially important for a child that is different. At the end of the book there is an important message for all parents that gives parents choices and alternatives--Delos Smith, President and Chief Economist for Delos Smith and Associates-Was a severe dyslexic that became a pluslexic.
This book is so great... I'm laughing and learning at the same time. The illustrator is classic!
