Hugo Hippo and Bella Bird are best buddies--but that doesn't mean they have to be exactly the same. Does it? Hugo is feeling pretty unique. Bella wants to be unique, too--she wants to be unique exactly like Hugo Hmmm. Maybe Bella doesn't quite get "unique." And how can Hugo be unique if Bella is copying everything he does? Hugo and Bella find themselves in friendly face-off in this cheerful follow-up to I Don't Want to Be a Pea, which Kirkus Reviews called a "charming story of compromise." And whether you've been the copycat or the copycatted, you'll identify with the simpatico pair's search for distinction.
