Submitter: This one brings immediately to mind people who are labeled “special,” but it isn’t that kind of book at all. It’s more of a “These are the people in your neighborhood”. This is the hard cover version. It’s just now leaving the Children’s Room at my library, but I thought it was such an awful example of “special people” (especially the last one…), I thought I’d send it along to you.
Holly: Mary does love a good clown. I like the diversity of the characters. If it is in good shape and circulates well, it isn’t the worst thing ever, but I agree about the title being a bit misleading.
Mary: Clowns are not “special people.” They are evil and are sent to destroy us. I would hate to mislead the kids.
