Product description


A small, eloquent book with a powerful message. (Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW 2016-06-28)

Cassidy does a lovely job of letting the lessons of embracing individuality, confidence, acceptance, and tolerance clearly and cleverly reveal themselves in this short but punchy novel. (Quill & Quire 2016-09-01)

This is a book of gentle nudges that could open some minds as well as some possibility for discussion. (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books 2016-09-01)

Cassidy's novella is a little gem … a lovely book with which to begin the school year, not only for the message of tolerance it conveys, but also for the beautiful language in which it has been delivered. (Canadian Children's Book News 2016-11-01)
