Maybe being different isn't so bad after all.
‘Not all clouds are white,’ I said, and Piccolo looked at me.
‘Not all trees are tall. Not all birds are brown. Not all cats are tabby like you, Piccolo. Some are black. Some are orange. Some are calico.’
Piccolo swished his stripy tail. I plucked a flower and showed it to him. ‘This flower isn’t yellow, but it isn’t wrong. It is what it’s supposed to be. No one would want it to be yellow. Everyone would say it’s lovely just the way it is.’
Blue Flower is a beautifully told picture book about self-esteem, resilience and the discovery that being different can be something wonderful.
