THE STORY: Takota, the puppy, loves to make friends. When Bill the Kitty wonders if they really can be friends, Takota gets his feelings hurt and falls to sleep. All of a sudden, a Parrot SQUAWKS, and Takota wakes up in a Pet Shop, far from home. All the animals in the Pet Shop are curious about Takota. His fur, his tail, his teeth, ears, and nose are very different from the other animals. He feels bad about being different and wants to go home. That is, until they all go on an adventure and realize that everyone is different in their own special way. And Takota, with all his differences, has the strength to save the day.

Lisa Harding’s exuberant illustrations highlight the essence of friendship and community in this uplifting story by author Anne Kruse.
