A clever, amusingly meta picture book with a wholesome message that teaches kids to love themselves just the way they are.

Meet "Book"—a plain old book with a dusty yellow jacket and torn pages. When Book’s library closes, it moves to a new one in a neighboring town, expecting a friendly welcome. But the kids there don’t care for books with dusty jackets and torn pages! So, Book hatches a plan to change its jacket and rewrites its pages to fit in with the new crowd. After several hilarious failures to do so, Book finally learns to accept itself just the way it always was—spelling misteaks and all.
