The Boy Who Looked Like Lincoln by Mike Reiss

Mike Reiss, writer for <i>The Simpsons</i>, and David Catrow, honored twice with a New York Times best illustrated book of the year, have joined forces once again for their quirkiest book yet.<br /> <br /> Benjy has an unusual problem. He looks just like Abraham Lincoln-right down to the wart and beard. Needless to say, his life isnt easy. He gets gifts of Lincoln Logs and stovepipe hats on every birthday. He gets stuck playing Lincoln in every school play-whether hes part of the story or not. And the teasing is unrelenting. When school ends he plans on spending another summer sitting inside alone, but his parents have a surprise. Theyre sending him to Camp What-cha-ma-call-it-The Camp for Kids Who Look Like Things! Within scenes reminiscent of Bosch and Brueghel, Benjy learns that hes not unusual-hes unique! And when he realizes whats special about himself, it doesnt take long for others to realize it as well.<br /> <br /> Mike Reiss and David Catrow have created a wonderfully hysterical tale that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt a little different from his or her peers.<br /> <br /> Illustrated by David Catrow.
