Eddie Longpants is big. Really big. He has long legs and huge feet and gangly arms that dangle down from his shoulders and bump into everything. Every day at school, his classmates find new ways to bully him. One day they call him a giraffe, the next a flagpole or a stepladder. When things get too painful, he takes refuge under his favorite tree. But a turn of events at recess one day helps Eddie win over his tormentors. In the end Eddie and his classmates realize that being big isn’t so bad after all, especially when you have a big heart. Eddie Longpants is a strikingly fresh and gentle book about learning to appreciate differences in ourselves and others.
