A picture book about shyness from a new and truly innovative artist
Halibut Jackson is a very shy person. He would prefer not to be noticed at all. So he makes himself clothes to suit his surroundings. His library suit has a striped look to it to match the shelves. But when he is invited to a party at the Palace, he is flummoxed -- what does the palace look like inside? At last, having researched hard, and sewn quickly, Halibut is ready: only to discover that the party is not being held where he expected it to be, and his suit does not suit the occasion at all. But everyone admires it tremendously.
