Big Sky Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781925520033
Picture book. Highly recommended. A beautifully illustrated book, telling the story of a young sugar glider who has to make her own way in the world. Sugar finds herself a place to live and works hard to make it a home. Sugar's new neighbours make her feel welcome. Sugar notices she is different to her new friends and she didn't like it, until one day when she learnt why she was different and used this difference to save her new friends.
Sugar learnt that we are all different for a reason, we just need to work out what that reason is.
