When Billy starts at his new school, he is dismayed to discover there is no one there like him. There is an alligator, a frog, a leopard and a skunk, but no elephants! He complains at home, and dad suggests they try to find a friend for him on the Internet. Just the right one turns up. Frank likes all the same things that Billy does, and, furthermore, they are both grey with big ears, a long nose and go to the same school! Frank turns out to be a mouse, but that is fine with Billy because he knows that underneath, Frank is just like him. An excellent modern fable about intolerance. Wonderful illustrations.
