New from the creator of the ABBY Award-winning Stellaluna. Some people call the creatures Fuzzheads, though most humans do not know--or believe--Trupp's kind exists. When Trupp decides to venture out into the world disguised as a scarecrow, he and raven are confronted by a woman who sees Trupp for who he really is. A beautifully illustrated, humorous, and heartwarming exploration of human compassion. Full color.
