Something Else Something Else

Kathryn Cave
Illustrated by Chris Riddell

Something Else is a lonely creature, excluded from everything because he is different.


One day an equally curious creature (Something) turns up, giving him the chance to meet someone even stranger than himself.


At first he rejects him on the grounds that he is so peculiar, but then realises that this is exactly what he has experienced.


This is the perfect book for reassuring any child that being different can be a very positive thing.
