Trupp

Product Details

By Janell Cannon

I found this book quite odd. It deals with an imaginary creature who visits a city of humans in disguise. Most people in the story don’t realize the creature is not human, only other animals and a homeless lady notice. The author’s point seems to be that we see what we want to see and can easily miss the misery or need right under our noses. The homeless lady in the story even comments that she wears a bright costume in order to be noticed. Visually, the book is intended for young readers, but the themes of the book lend themselves to middle school and up. This picturebook would make a good spring board for discussion in the older grades.
