John Jensen Feels Different (Henrik Hovland)

This book first caught my eye because of the name Jensen - my maiden name! And besides, why in the world would an alligator be named John Jensen. Looked cute - and it was.

My kids loved the alligator. The story has a message that it is okay to be different. The story is set in Norway. I haven't run into a lot of picture books set in Norway.

John Jensen, a crocodile, cannot quite understand why he feels so different from everyone else, but a kindly doctor reassures him that no one is exactly the same as anyone else.
