No One Is Like You, Loulou!

An amusing story in rhyme about recognising one’s strengths and developing self-confidence.

Elephant girl Loulou is not happy with herself: Her ears are too big, her trunk too long, and there’s nothing special about her … she’s just such an irrelephant. Her friend, the toucan, spares no effort to cheer her up and shows her what wonderful things she can do – making water fountains showering the other animals and then drying them by flapping her ears. But only when the other animals ask her to impersonate them does Loulou realise that the things she started out not liking about herself are what makes her truly special.
