Written and illustrated by Aidan Cassie

Hardcover
Ages 4-8



Kemala the pangolin is sure she's going to make friends at her new school in her new country. After all, Kemala loves to talk. The kids at school like talking, too--but their words are all different. This country speaks a language Kemala doesn't know.

At first, no one understands Kemala either. This realization makes her curl into a little ball, like most pangolins do when they're nervous.

But a classmate helps draw her out with an art project that doubles as a vocabulary exchange. Soon, Kemala is learning the most universal language of all: friendship.

Aidan Cassie is also the picture book author and illustrator of Sterling, Best Dog Ever and Little Juniper Makes it Big!.
