A painfully shy squirrel named Edmond makes pom-pom hats, an owl dresses up in animal disguises to trick his friends (or does he secretly enjoy empathizing in someone else’s shoes?), an outgoing bear loves to throw wild parties—who could ask for anything more? This eccentric story of coming into your own and out of your shell makes great use of psychedelic colors to give the book a retro feel. Best of all, the world is filled with kids who embrace their weirdness, and those are the ones who befriend quirky Edmond the quickest. Ages five and up.
