This is a short adn charming little book about being true to yourself, and taking chances. Sweetly told and beautifully illustrated, and funny
I love this book and we don't get tired of reading it. I like reading to my child but sometimes feel too tired at night to read aloud ALL the words in a story (looking at you Dr. Seuss!) ... this one is easy on the parent's vocal cords.It has a surprise joke ending but the kid never gets tired of it.... and it make you think. The illustrations are some of the best I've seen.
Fun, whimsical story enjoyed by all ages. Beautifully crafted and illustrated.
