My Thoughts: Davey has a big head that gets in the way of everything. It gets in the way climbing the monkey bars and playing dodge ball. Davey just doesn't seem to fit in anywhere. As we follow Davey to his perfect placement, we all see it is not that bad being different.

A little reminiscence of Johnny Big Ears, The Feel Good Friend by John Paul Padilla. This seems to be a growing epidemic: books about kids who look different, but different turns out not bad. I think it is a good message for kids having trouble with bullies in school, and could be a good one to read in classrooms.

About the Author: This is Peter J. Hayden first and only book, so far.
