Synopsis

Everyone is constantly comparing Percival Puddicombe to his relatives. They say he has his mother's nose, his father's eyes, his sister's mouth, his brother's hair, his aunt's ear for music, and his uncle's head for numbers. Percival knows that he's his OWN man, but how can he convince his family? It will take a trip to Grandma and Grandpa's house-and some strange goings-on at home-to prove to everyone once and for all that there's nobody quite like Percival! (Or is there?)
