This story is about animals who wanted to be like the other animals. The characters admired what the other animals were like. The animals in the story were a lion, hedgehog, toucan, elephant, chameleon, stork and a kangaroo. The animals imagined looking and acting like one another. At the end of the story, the animals found out how silly they were!

I liked the story because it was funny. The pictures looked colorful. I liked the funny pictures the most. My favorite character is the hedgehog because he is funnier than the other animals.

I recommend kids to read this book for kids that are feeling sad. This book will make them giggle. I liked it a lot!
