Is the Tease Monster a friend or a foe? That’s what “One of a Kind” has to figure out in this quirky tale that teaches young readers the difference between nice teasing and mean teasing.
“One of a Kind” is truly unique. Made up of multiple colours, One has big feet and loves eating popsicles while standing upside down. But when Purple laughs at One for being weird and Green playfully calls One a “klutz” after tripping on the stairs, One feels rotten and vows never to go back to school.
With words of wisdom from Mom about the Tease Monster, however, One discovers that teasing is part of life. And not all teasing is the same. One learns that laughing at someone (mean teasing) has a hurtful bite, but laughing with someone (nice teasing) is alright when it’s not done out of spite!
