About this Book A special book where three different colours, red, yellow and blue, do not like each other. They realise that despite being different, they still can be friends. Along Came a Different just goes to show how much better we can all be when we come together to find common ground as friends.
Reviews from Around the World "Established author and illustrator in the children’s book field, Tom McLaughlin has released a brand new picture book for younger readers (0-5 category) titled, Along Came A Different. It is a visually appealing storybook that zones on in concepts of difference and friendship. Along Came A Different is presented in a format that is very accessible to young readers." -Amanda, Amazon
"Dramatically different (pardon the pun) from anything else McLauglin has produced before, this avant-garde picture book cleverly combines colour recognition, geometry and social acceptance all in one neat entertaining package. Several different groups converge into one community space but despise one another because reds, blues and yellows just don't match. Rules are established and boundaries are enforced. Life is tense and restrictive. Until one day, quite unexpectedly, a really different different comes along, radically altering their perceptions and igniting a massive appreciation of how being different is actually better. Friendship prevails and happiness blooms. ''' - Dimity Powell, Amazon
