A lovely and laugh-out-loud picture book from the award-winning author of Rude Cakes and Most Marshmallows .

A silly read-aloud tale for kids about being yourself!
Mabel isn't like the other mermaids. Lucky isn't like the other
octopuses. But when they find each other, they discover that true
friendship isn't about how you look, and that sometimes what we are
searching for is right under our noses.

The inimitable Rowboat Watkins is back with another humorous tale about being true to yourself.

* A delightful, inspiring read-aloud book for toddlers that celebrates gender diversity and difference

* Stylish, accessible art brings this story of being true to yourself to hilarious life.

* Rowboat Watkins is a 2010 Sendak Fellow and Ezra Jack Keats honoree.

Young readers of Julian Is a Mermaid , Mary Wears What She Wants , and Exclamation Mark will find much to love in this tale that celebrates individuality and acceptance.

* Read-aloud books for kids age 3-5

* Books for teachers and librarians

* Gender, differences, being yourself
