This little Armadillo is a happy chappy with a great sense of humour, but he is very different from his other animal friends. While he tries his best, things always go wrong because he tries too hard, and, oh my, do they go wrong! When he invites them all to a party, they are excited and make requests: a cake, musical chairs, pass the parcel and balloons, but on the day of the party, his friends discover a sponge cake, made of kitchen sponges, an empty pass the parcel, a chair made of musical instruments, and a very large hot air balloon tied to the front door. After feeling glum about all this when the others explain, he trips over the musical chair, and after a series of unfortunate accidents in which he ends up falling in the cheese, he hops up, full of beans and explains to his friends that ‘I’m creative, I think differently! And that’s not wrong, it’s right. ’Then he shows all the ways they can use his mistakes, and it ends up the best party ever. They all learn that Armadillo being himself is ‘the best thing he can be’. Lots of rhymes and repetition that young children love and the funniest of brightly coloured pictures full of incident will appeal to every child, whether ‘different’ or not.
