About the Book

A humorous picture book featuring a blob (n. a creature that can be anything they want) about embracing who we are and the many things we can be.

After a series of funny yet enlightening discoveries about all the possible things they can be, Blob realizes that the best thing to be is . . .


(With the L.)

Author, artist, and auntie Anne Appert creates an irresistible story sure to please fans of What If, Pig?Tiny T. Rex, and other hilariously charming and meaningful picture books.
