You've seen them, those children who wear matching shirts or hair bows or have the same backpack and lunchbox. The ones who feel as if their friend is rejecting them when they have a differing opinion on who is the mightiest superhero or coolest singer. They actually pretend to like things just to make their friend happy, for fear that the friendship will end if there is ever a disagreement. And that's just what Sparkles thinks. Sparkles has a secret that the pony is sure will mean Ballet Cat will not want to be friends ever again. So what should Sparkles do? Continue to pretend? Tell the truth and reveal the totally secret secret? And how will Ballet Cat respond?
Bob Shea has done it again with his seemingly simple drawings that manage to convey so much motion and feeling. A perfect story for parents or teachers dealing with young ones that believe friends must feel and do everything exactly alike.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
