This darkly funny fable uses unforgettably vivid art to reveal a girl's strange transformations as she learns to be happy with who she is.


In a wonderfully illustrated book, a little girl is so concerned with everyone's opinion of her that she stops being herself and spontaneously becomes whatever anyone calls her, whether purple polka-dotted or as striped as the flag.

A good poke in the eye of conformity.
