This is the story of an endearing creature who is thrown into turmoil when drought strikes his island and home life becomes strained. With the help of his grandmother, playing with his friends and special traditions, he manages to find happiness and confidence again. But then - he has to face a new, different challenge. He's become old enough to shed his skin for the very first time - and he wants to do it for all the benefits it will bring - but he's terrified. What will happen if he sheds it? Will he still be himself? His life changes forever when he comes to the astonishing realization that no matter what skin he's in or what happens in his life, deep down he will always be himself. This short chapter book with watercolor illustrations is designed to speak to both the minds and hearts of 6- to 10-year-old children, as well as older folk who are young at heart. With its profound underlying message and catchy rhyme and song, this book can be a great support to anyone, particularly when times are tough.
