The Land of This and That doesn't have room for Neither, the not-quite blue bunny, not-quite yellow bird born from a green egg. Neither by Airlie Anderson follows Neither as it tries and fails to fit in with the blue bunnies and yellow birds of the Land of This and That. Eventually, Neither leaves and finds the Land of All, where everyone belongs and no one is too different or weird to fit in. Using colorful illustrations and sparse language, Neither invites us all to consider the complexities of our differences and find acceptance not despite, but because of them.
