Alex the monkey has only one arm. Rebecca the rabbit has floppy ears that don’t stand up straight. Zoe the zebra has green and black stripes. These are just some of the animals who are members of the Weird Animal Club. They’re all just a little different from the others, but they’ve become best friends. They play together and have lots of fun with their human friend, Cate, a girl who walks on her toes.
It’s Halloween, and the Weird Animal Club is ready to go trick-or-treating. But Cate notices the lonely new neighbors who moved in across the street. Haley the Hippo has a red tongue that doesn’t fit into her mouth, and Jenna the giraffe has a long but crooked neck. The Weird Animal Club invites Haley and Jenna to join in the fun.
A sequel, The Weird Animal Club at Halloween shares a story of love and acceptance and shows children that being different means they are special, and special is good.
