Product description

Review

“Steele communicates her message that “normal” is in the eye of the beholder without a whiff of preachiness. Her cartoon pigs, done in watercolor with assured, black outlines, are appealing, and any child who feels they stand out in any way will identify and feel empowered. Delightful and important.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Steele shows how powerful and comforting a wider perspective can be. The watercolor-and-ink cartooning combines a keen eye for domestic and school dynamics with a sweet goofiness that pulls readers through the story, until Pip emerges at the end a wiser and stronger pig.” --
Publishers Weekly (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

Pip is a normal pig who does normal stuff: cooking, painting, and dreaming of what she'll be when she grows up.

But one day a new pig comes to school and starts pointing out all the ways in which Pip is different. Suddenly she doesn't like any of the same things she used to . . . the things that made her Pip.

This charming picture book celebrates all our differences while questioning the idea that there is only one way to be "normal."

--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2019
Love this book. It help children understand that everyone is different. There’s not really a standard “Normal”.
If you buy her book, and go to her website, you maybe able to get her signed bookplate!
I got one for my son! It is really special. She even drew on the back of the envelope! So sweet!
