"On a foggy, foggy morning in the land of the swamp, from a battered, speckled egg, Creole was born. She was big, fat and very, very ugly. She had warts on her fingers, warts on her toes, boney pointed knees and a big flat nose. Beneath all of that which made her so ugly was the most beautiful heart that had ever beat anywhere in the world." Thus begins the story of Creole and her attempt to make friends and the rejection she experiences until she encounters a most unexpected surprise. Color illustrations by Robin James.
