The Big Orange Splot by Daniel Pinkwater

The Big Orange SplotIn The Big Orange Splot, written and illustrated by Daniel Pinkwater, Mr. Plumbean lives on a street were all the house are just alike, until the day a seagull drops a can or orange paint on Mr. Plumbean's house, leaving a big orange splot on his roof.  His neighbours complain about the spot and want Mr. Plumbean to get rid of it but instead the splot inspires Mr. Plumbean to express his individuality.  This causes all kinds of changes in the neighbourhood.

Anna and I both enjoyed this book.  The story and illustrations were fun.  It gave us a chance to talk about the importance of being free to be you.
