I am a most unusual animal.
I have fur like a dog and I'm shaped like a sheep.
But no one seems to know just what I am.
Everyone tries to categorize the remarkable creature, but while he may not know what he is, he knows very well what he isn'ta cat, a rat, a lion, a wild boar, or hippopotamus.
Then one day he meets an equally unusual animal who accepts him for himself. I know what you are, she tells him. You are my friend.
This sweet, simple story will gladden the hearts of all children who have ever felt different.
