Very nice pictures, but it was a tad sad. But the moral was great! We are who we are, so be proud of that! Great Illustrations!

The story is cute, but I was annoyed by the black text on top of a dark background. I was reading it with a talented 5 yr old old reader and she kept holding the book up so she could try to make out some of the words. It was frustrating, but the moral of the story was cute: You are the way you are for a reason and you should love that part of you.

This book about a cute skunk inspired my daughter Cassie's nickname, "Cassafrass", but I don't remember much else about it!
