I feel like this book could have been written by none other than Matt Reynolds.

Wesley is a misfit who doesn't go along with cultural norms. He doesn't want to do his hair the same way as everyone, he hates sports that everyone loves, and the monotony of his town just gets him down. After learning about civilizations in school, he makes it his summer project to create his own civilization.

This was a really interesting picture book about being different, things that make up civilizations and cultures, and sustainability. The illustrations were very vivid! I think I would use this if I taught maybe 4th grade and older. But I could use it this year in reading workshop! We'll see!!
