Colin on the other hand is a carrot stick, tall, orange, and not much good at rolling or bouncing. So what on earth could these two have in common?

Morag Hood‘s understated but utterly striking illustrations are full of charm and texture are a perfect fit for this story of highlighting differences.

Coupled with Hood‘s iconic illustrative styling, this makes for a fun read, bursting with wit and an underlying warmth.

In a world where we may be ridiculed for standing out and being unique, this book not only celebrates our individuality, it positively advocates being different and for that, we love this book!
