When Momo comes for a visit, his squirrel cousins are more than a little excited. But even though Momo is a flying squirrel, he won't fly for their friends. Plus, he dresses funny and his games are weird; he can't even play hide and seek right. But when they finally give Momo's ways a chance, his cousins realize that trying new things can be fun—almost as much fun as making a new friend. Zachariah OHora's boldly painted illustrations are full of hilarious details, and his kid-friendly humor will ring true with readers up to 6 in this story about accepting and celebrating differences.
