Ciccio created a cute story about being yourself because that "something" about you shows someone how you love them. Our boy, Corey, is bullied and teased by his classmates, but when they learn the why of the cape wearing (despite the biggest bully, Billy, always taking it) you see how brave Corey really is. A classic feeling with modern sentiments, this adorably illustrated book is a must have for your shelves. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
