Official Book Description:
The Purple Polka-Dotted Peanut Butter Eater
When we saw her walk in, “she” was more like an “IT!” It had a huge nose and sharp teeth that could barely fit.
Through the door it squeezed and all we could see, was purple polka-dotted skin from its head to its knees.
When a new student joins your class it can be a little scary, especially if they happen to be a purple polka-dotted
peanut butter eater! Sometimes, first impressions aren’t the best. You need time to see the big picture. And with
patience and understanding, every new “IT” that comes into your life might just be your new best friend.
