Norman Blue

I’m A Cocky, Too

44 pages
Starfish Bay Publishing Pty Ltd
Norman Blue badly wants to fit in, but he has a secret: he has no crest like the other cockatoos. He tries to do all the things cockatoos do: screeching when he’d rather sing, preening vainly, munching on houses, and even launching poo. But when he loses his fake crest one day, he meets a unique possum and realizes that he can have the courage to be who he is, too. In this charmingly illustrated story about difference and bravery, readers will learn the power of self-acceptance.
