What do creaking rafters, lawnmower haircuts, unusual friendships, Morse code, and a unique hedgehog have in common? They are all part of one man's brave quest for friendship, in a world that shuns him because of one thing. And that thing just doesn't grow on them. It grows where you least expect it. This witty and surprising tale for all ages is deep and thought-provoking, yet frolics along lightly, weaving humour, insight, and heart into a world of rhyme and imagination.

Review - 'Every child's heart will be touched and connected to others' through this book, and our children, and the child in us all, will feel joy as we go about our day.' - Brock Tully, co-founder, Kindness Foundation of Canada

Review #2 - '...A fantastic story that lends itself to discussing important topics pertaining to bullying, xenophobia, friendship and even the environment. My students were enthralled... Unlike many picture books about bullying and/or friendship, the depth of the topics in Cooper's book lent themselves to encourage a rich and meaningful... platform for students to engage in the subject matter in a mature and age-appropriate manner. I highly recommend this book not only for educators, but for parents as well.' - Alexis Birner, academic director, Pear Tree Education, BC, Canada
