I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.
This is a story about a kid who just wants to be like everyone else in his class at school, because being different is hard. And all the other kids have flat hair, nitro-flyer shoes, and missing teeth. His mom does her best to convince him that his differences make him Herman and special. Then when he gets to school the other kids want to be more like him, some of them coming to school with their hair spiky and wanting to climb trees instead of run fast at recess.
The illustrations were colorful and bright with crisp lines, perfectly showing the action of the story without a ton of extraneous background activity. Overall I give this book 3.47 out of 5 stars. - Katie
