What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The Number Three is having an identity crisis-there are so many other things he could do with his life; why stop at being just a number? He tries being a ship’s anchor, a spatula, even a shiny bronze sculpture, and he won’t listen when the other numbers beg him to come back to the lineup. But after awhile, Number Three starts to realize that what he enjoys most is the job no one else can do: being the Number Three.

It’s Not Easy Being Number Three is a clever book that celebrates the importance of feeling appreciated for one’s talents.
