Tuesday Talkabout: Mostly Monsterly

Description on Simon and Schuster page:

"Bernadette might seem like an ordinary monster, but sometimes she likes to do some very unmonsterlike things, like pick flowers. And pet kittens. And bake.

When the time comes for Bernadette to go to Monster Academy, she's just a teensy bit nervous. Her classmates just don't understand her. They'd rather uproot trees than sing friendship songs. And they prefer fried snail goo to Bernadette's homemade cupcakes with sprinkles. Can Bernadette find a way to make friends at school and still be herself?"

I read this book.  I bought this book.  It's adorable and funny.  You can't help but root for Bernadette as she stands outside the norm.  But no one enjoys being the outcast and I hoped Bernadette would find a way in without having to change who she was.  (You'll have to read it to find out what happens.  No spoilers here!)
