Rainbow Fish creator Marcus Pfister has crafted a novel ode to self-acceptance in Just the Way You Are, trans. by Marianne Martens. Throughout, die-cut pages picture animals envious of other animals: Lion would like to have Toucan's beak, Toucan would like to be as big and strong as Elephant. But in the end, the animals accept their individual qualities. The Spanish-language edition Somos como somos, trans. by Ariel Almohar, is also available. (May)
