A fable that reminds readers that “normal” isn’t always better.
Faÿ’s pictures are standouts: flat, bright colors; simple shapes; and straight-on compositions bring to mind a mid-century modern nursery mural, and the vignettes brim with sweet-natured visual comedy.
A good anti-bullying story.
Well-plotted, beautifully illustrated with a beautiful message about embracing our differences. ….That’s Not Normal has a lesson that every person, young or not-so-young needs to constantly hear to by happy in our everyday life.
Elephant is blue, animals move on two legs and talk to one another, and Zebra has removable stripes—all of which underlines the text’s implied messages that normality is highly relative and it is not a good idea to ridicule those who are different.
