"The humour will grab children.... This is a simple, meaningful and visually stunning book that reminds us all that what we look like on the outside doesn’t matter nearly so much as what we are like on the inside." ReadPlus, highly recommended

Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Or is it just annoying? This hilarious read-aloud explores every child's least favorite form of admiration: copying.  It also helps readers deal with the sensitive topics of conformity, individuality, and belonging in an accessible, kid-friendly way. Ultimately, setting boundaries should be empowering for kids, just like it is for Norton.
