Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

A sweet story about difference, problem-solving, and affection that is sweetly illustrated and beautifully told.

A very sweet story filled with hugs and acceptance! Paul Schmid, as both author and illustrator, does a great job in making Pearl's feelings and emotions leap off the page.
