Can “different” be good?

Dear Readeo Friends,

Two new books by Guido van Genechten explore what it’s like to be different.

The first title, The Big Sleep Book, shows the many ways creatures rest, from the fish in the deep blue sea to sheep sleeping under a full moon. Even though they all rest in their own way, they are just like Josh, who needs sleep too, nestled between his two cuddly toys in his own bed.

The rabbit hero of Ricky does not like being different. If only his right ear would stand up like his left ear, the other rabbits would stop making fun of him! He tries everything to set things right, and nothing works. At last, he comes up with a different solution.
