There are some more hidden themes too, for instance the importance of telling someone you trust when your troubled, or; being brave when things are not easy being yourself; even some of the challenges that can face children when moving schools, or being introduced to a new class member.
I really love the illustration style and the way the images progress through the book, they express how the differences between children and people bring colour and interest to life.
I especially love the moment when the teacher has to turn away because though she's supposed to be angry, she's got the giggles... a lovely way to show the dynamic that some children will recognise between the authority of the teacher and an occasional glimpse of who that teacher is as a person.
It's a good book for infants and younger junior aged children. It is a read that gently, even tenderly, leads the reader through some early real-life challenges in a wholesome way.
Altogether, a read that can be enjoyed by children, parents and teachers, for the fun that it expresses and the book's suggestion that developing embracing friendships is a really positive, colourful and fun way to live.
I bought a copy for myself and one for my niece and nephew they love it - especially the class pictures at the beginning and the end.
And it brought a whole new unexpected appreciation for dandelions. My son used to pick them me as flowers and we'd put them in a glass and admire how beautiful a flower they really were.

Probably from about age 4 upwards.
Lovely pictures and story about it being good to be different - but also challenging as a child too.
Lizzie Finlay's books are just brilliant. I now buy both of Lizzie Finlay's books for anyone who has just had a child instead of buying some clothes that they will never wear! Read morePublished on 17 Oct. 2012 by Miss B
