An exploration of empathy and unity – featuring Elise Gravel’s signature quirky monsters!


Everybody is unique and different. But we are all more similar than we think. Just like you:


Everybody has fears.

Everybody has moments of joy . . . and moments of sadness.

Everybody makes mistakes . . . and can fix them.


And, just like you, everybody needs to feel safe and valued.


From beloved children’s author Elise Gravel comes a reassuring picture book, perfect for trying times.
