Reviews

'The story is prettily illustrated in soft pastels, and gently makes the point that everyone is unique and special; and that laughing at someone for being different is really rather silly. It would be particularly useful to read to any child who feels a bit 'different' -- perhaps because of a disability, or because of wearing glasses, for example -- but since, as the story points out, we all feel 'different' at one time or another, it would be a good read for any child.'

'This gentle picture book with softly coloured illustrations has a realistic depiction of playground style bullying, an obvious moral and a happy ending which leaves the bullies feeling silly.'
-- www.wordpool.co.uk

'A very well-illustrated little book ... The story line will help parents to gently encourage young children to think and talk about how they see themselves and others. A positive story for parents to read with 5-7 year olds about self-acceptance; younger children will enjoy it too.'
-- Youth in Mind (www.youthinmind.net)
