Palle & Monko’s Peculiar Day

Jenni Rope

Palle and Monko are forest mushrooms, but of a very special kind. They are artists!
One afternoon they decide to paint themselves stripy and after that all the mushrooms want to become different. So one gets dots, the other stripes…but how will they recognize each other?
This colorful picture book tackles the ups and downs of being happy in your own skin, just as you are.
