I'm the Happiest by Anna Shuttlewood (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

 3rd March 2014, QED, 26 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Summary from Boomerang Books (QED didn't have a summary up at the time of scheduling this review in January 2014)
 While all the other animals are busy arguing over who is the best, only the Raccoon is happy for all of them. Although each animal is different, can they learn to appreciate each other and live together happily?
Nayuleska's thoughts
Living in a world where materialism seems commonplace, I feel this book is highly relevant. The cute racoon is pleased for his friends no matter what they said, whereas all the other animals looked miserable not to be the best in each category. The racoon looks happy, has soft looking fur - I wanted to hug him tight to soak up his genuine enthusiasm. I'm sure few can read this book without wanting to copy the racoon's adorable happy dance!
