Eddie Longpants is big, really big, with long legs, enormous feet, and gangly arms that dangle down from his shoulders and bump into everything. At school, his classmates find new and interesting ways to bully him each day, calling him a giraffe, a flagpole, or a stepladder. When their name-calling becomes too painful, Eddie takes refuge under his favorite tree. But one day the bullying goes too far and the teacher takes notice. Now Eddie must decide whether to turn the tables on his tormentors or show them that there’s more than one way to behave. Mireille Levert's lush illustrations illuminate this fresh and gentle story that teaches children to appreciate their differences and celebrate diversity.
