From the illustrator of the bestselling If Animals Kissed Goodnight comes this author-illustrator debut about the everlasting bonds of love.
If you could be a different kind of you,
what would you wish to be?
A monkey in a tree?
Would you be a fluffy fox?
A slow-moving sloth?
Or maybe, if you had the choice,
you wouldn’t be different at all…
because maybe, right here with the ones you love
is the best place in the world to be.
David Walker has illustrated many books for children, including Victoria Adler’s Baby, Come Away and Ann Whitford Paul’s Little Monkey Says Good Night and If Animals Kissed Good Night. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
"The rhymes are steady and gentle, set against smudgy, dreamlike backdrops in a palette of lush greens and warm, toasty yellows. The rabbit appears envious of others’ abilities but always circles back to a connection with family. It’s not a tale of self-acceptance or identity but rather unconditional love." —Kirkus
