A Tale of a Tail
by Anca Sandu
32 pages; ages 4-8
We've all lost things: a favorite pencil, an action hero, the math homework from last night. But what's a pig to do when he loses his tail?
Of all the things Churchill prized, his tail was the one he prized most. It wasn't too big or too fancy or even very practical. But it was his, and he liked it. Then one morning... his tail is nowhere to be found! After searching here and there, his friends suggest that he try on different animal tails.
Churchill tries on a zebra tail, a peacock tail, and a fish tail. Soon, the only thing Churchill wants to talk about is how much fun he's having trying on tails. But his friends want to play. Eventually (and I'm not gonna spill the beans here) Churchill finds his tail, which means he has more time to spend with his friends.
This is a fun book that leaves room for children to wonder what they might look like with a tail. Which will lead to some browsing through books to see what kinds of tails there are in the animal kingdom. And if a kid makes a tail, then he'll probably want ears to go with it....
