Publisher and Year: Pajama Press, 2019

Synopsis: Caring for a new hamster gets nine-year-old Jeannie thinking about behaviour and how it's always a response to something--and how people around you should JUST FOLLOW THE RULES. But when this doesn't happen, and THE RULES get broken, Jeannie discovers that special friends can make you feel better, even when your world is falling apart. In this warm, family story, readers will meet a collection of larger-than-life characters who, in the end, answer bigger questions for each other about acceptance and diversity.

For ages 8 - 12; winner of the Joan Betty Stuchner Funniest Children’s Book Award.
