Description

Benjy has an unusual problem. He looks just like Abraham Lincoln right down to the wart and beard. His life isn't easy. He gets gifts of Lincoln Logs and stovepipe hats on every birthday. He gets stuck playing Lincoln in every school play whether Lincoln's part of the story or not. And the teasing is unrelenting . . . until he spends a summer at Camp What-cha-ma-call-it The Camp for Kids Who Look Like Things! Here he finally realizes what is special about himself, and it doesn't take long for others to realize it as well. Mike Reiss, a writer for "The Simpsons, " and David Catrow, honored twice with the "New York Times" Best Illustrated Book of the Year award, have created a wonderfully hysterical tale that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt a little different."
