Not quite as politico as Bundo

The Someone New - Jill Twiss

This book is a little less directly political than Marlon Bundo.  There is no Orange Skull or Pence figure.  But there the title and plot suggest a look at immigration but it can equally be applied to being the new kid in school.


Jitterbug, the chipmunk, is nervous when a new animal arrives in the forest.  That would be Pudding the Snail (who seems to be moving because of climate change).  Jitterbug's friends point out some things and learning ensues.


The illustrations are lovely.  There are little things hidden in the pictures and even some of the wording.  It was fun.
