Fragility the hippo is solid on the outside and fragile on the inside. In every compliment, Fragility hears an insult. If someone says she looks nice, she hears that she looks like a big, squishy cupcake-since cupcakes are also nice. But soon, Rudy the bully comes along to insult her for real. In the face of these insults, will Fragility realize the difference between a jab and a compliment?

This lively, hilarious tale is now part of a fun, value-priced 8" x 8" hardcover series about life lessons.

Editorial Reviews

Munsinger''s illustrations prop up this...tale with a brace of good cheer and well-tempered comedy.
Kirkus Reviews

The punchy story line will keep children laughing, and Munsinger''s characteristic watercolor illustrations bring the tale to life, making Lester''s cretures all the more entertaining and enjoyable.
School Library Journal

Lester enhances the basic story about handling emotions with a satisfying slapstick humor that''s beautifully extended in Munsinger''s hilarious, wildly expressive illustrations.
Booklist, ALA

The visual humor and the many opportunities for group interaction may win the book its own cadre of storytime fans.
