About the Book

Larry Lemming is unlike all the others, but can he teach the others to be more like him?

Lemmings look alike, sound alike and act alike, right? So if one jumps off a cliff, the others follow... all except Larry. Larry's a lemming with a mind of his own. Unlike the rest of the crew, he goes sledging with the puffins, eats pepperoni pizza, and likes to wear a top hat. But can Larry teach his fellow lemmings to finally think for themselves?

A wonderfully funny, quirky tale about staying true to yourself.
