Edmond the Thing
Edmond: The Thing is about a squirrel named Edmond, his friend George Owl, and a scary creature who simply appears one day, whom they call "the Thing." With its brightly-colored fur and piercing eyes, the Thing frightens Edmond and George, who run away from the unfamiliar creature.
But a day later, thanks to some fortifying green cookies and an excellent disguise on George's part, Edmond and George realize that the Thing isn't quite so terrifying after all.
Awash with color and full of lively details, this book is a relevant, thought-provoking story about overcoming the fear of what is different and unknown.
