Synopsis

It's Not Easy Being Number Three by Drew Dernavich

The Number Three is having an identity crisis - there are so many other things he wants to do; why stop at being just a number? He tries being a ship's anchor, the steering wheel of a plane, the wings of a seagull, even a shiny bronze sculpture for all to admire. But none of these jobs feel fulfilling. Will Number Three ever find a job that's just right for him - a job that only he can do? With echoes of Holt's successful Zero the Hero and the bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit, this clever book celebrates the importance of feeling appreciated for our special talents.

Reviews

An Amazon Best Book of the MonthAn ILA Children's Choices Selection In tune with the needs of early readers, Number Three is spelled out in the text but is pictured as a large . . . An acclaimed cartoonist in the adult world has created a solid hit for children. -Kirkus Reviews, starred review The poker-faced quality of Dernavich's renderings makes the possibility of an entirely numberless existence feel fresh and funny -Publisher's Weekly This is a wonderful way to draw young viewers into recognizing shapes. Engaging, humor-laden illustrations, created with india ink on scratchboard, are as unique as Number Three is. In a warming resolution, Three realizes he's most useful just being himself. Pair with Drew Daywalt's The Day the Crayons Quit. -Booklist
