My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This entire book has the classic Dr. Seuss feel, from the characters to the rhyming story. It was absolutely magical to read aloud to my son. I also love the message behind the story – it’s okay to be different. Being different is what makes us unique, a way of showing ourselves through different areas of our lives. Whether that is a fence painted red amongst nothing but white fences, the style of clothes you wear, music you listen to or how you style your hair. It’s one of those books that you will read over and over and never get tired of it. Bound to be a classic. I usually can’t wait to see what Ed comes up with next!
