About the Book



Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Or is it just annoying? This hilarious read-aloud explores every child's least favorite form of admiration: copying. It also helps readers deal with the sensitive topics of conformity, individuality, and belonging in an accessible, kid-friendly way. Ultimately, setting boundaries should be empowering for kids, just like it is for Norton.

Review Quotes




Shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year


From the recipient of the inaugural Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Picture Book Illustrator Award in the "Established Illustrator" category


"This is an endearing story about the contradictory need to be different, yet to belong...Gabriel Evans has taken this theme and created two lovable relatable characters who struggle with the push pull of this dichotomy until they realise they are inherently unique on the inside." CBCA Reading Time

"The humour will grab children as they will see their own overreactions within Norton's despair at Bear and his copying. This is a simple, meaningful and visually stunning book that reminds us all that what we look like on the outside doesn't matter nearly so much as what we are like on the inside."
