Little Gerbil cannot follow one of the all-important mottos of gerbil life: no matter how hard she tries, or how much she pretends, she cannot sleep curled nose to toes. She decides that she must tell the other gerbils the truth, and by so doing, she helps everyone realize that there is room for everyone’s differences. This thoroughly enjoyable book shares an important life lesson in a gentle manner that many children will find reassuring. The illustrations are sculptural and intricate and wonderfully fun to explore. Ages 4-8.
