John Jensen Feels Different

In this quirky story from Norwegian author Henrik Hovland, we find John Jensen, a crocodile who wonders why he feels different in the world. He spends several pages trying to change how he feels by changing how he looks. An unfortunate accident sends him to the emergency room where a doctor reassures him that feeling different in the world is perfectly normal. I liked this book because the message of accepting the things about yourself that make you different is one worth repeating. Those who have enjoyed the Lyle, Lyle Crocodile books, might enjoy this one, too.
