Overview
"This celebration of differences displays great respect for readers' intelligence and yields more with each reading. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Two shy kids discover the power of friendship in this charming picture book that celebrates being different.

A boy likes to dress as a cat, but his best friend's dog objects. What will he dress as now? A giraffe? A fox? A shark? When his best friend, Camille, suggests a frog, they work together to make the frog costume...until Camille runs out of patience. So the boy makes a list of the pros and cons of being a frog:

Pros:
1. My friend Camille gave me the idea
2. I'm less likely to be chased by a dog
3. Being in a frog costume makes me feel brave

Cons:
1. Not everyone loves wearing a frog costume as much as me
2. If you start getting bossy about your frog costume then your friend will get up and leave
3. A frog is NOT a solitary creature so it is no fun for a frog if his friend gets up and leaves

Luckily, he won't have to choose, because true friendship means accepting each other's differences: he can be himself and have his friend Camille.
