My son and I really liked the illustrations in this one. The pictures are so well done and the family of ferrets is funny. The book's main theme is to teach children to be who you are and embrace being different as a good thing. There’s also little science facts about ferrets through the story which makes it fun and interesting to learn. There are post reading activities at the end of the book which are great for discussion and additional learning. My son's favorite pages were “when the ferrets looked all stinky” or when the one was putting the gerbil on its plate to eat.
