Goliath: The Boy Who Was Different

(3) K-3 A giant red triangle-shaped boy wanders through a world of regularly proportioned human beings, desperate to fit in.

Illustrated in traffic-light colors applied by what resembles woodblocks, this tidy parable about being oneself comes in a suitably big-and-tall trim size.
