A simple story, about a small creature who does his best to join in with the others. But he's different. No matter how he tries, he just doesn't belong.

Then Something turns up and wants to be friends. But Something Else isn't sure he's like him at all...

Kathryn Cave's poignantly simple story is brought to life by Chris Riddell in this enchantingly original picture book - now reissued with a new cover look.
