In a charming tale for readers aged 7-9, So, I’m the Strange One, Am I? wraps a gentle message about acceptance together with useful information about some of the more intriguing creatures that live in the sea. A sociable young seahorse is disappointed to find that his habit of swimming upright and his ability to produce eggs even though he’s male attract unfavourable comment from the fish in his neighbourhood, who dislike him because he’s different. When his curiosity about the world tempts him to venture out into the open sea, the seahorse meets some unusual creatures. There is a fish that flies, a moon fish, a jet-propelled prawn, a lobster that sheds its covering, and a wise old fish who teaches him that everyone is different and special and that there is a place for everyone. Leda Tsouhnika’s cheerful illustrations match the light touch of Syrmo Mihail’s story.
