My Thoughts
Churchill is very proud of his tail and what a cute tail he had. Then one day his tail disappeared and he searched all over for his tail.  He decided to find a new tail because he did not like not having a tail.  He tried many tails. zebra, peacock, fish all kinds of tails. Some of the tails made him feel different. Strong, big, brave many different feelings and emotions. Then he began to ignore his friends and became very full of himself all because of his new many tails. 

Would Churchill ever be himself again? Whatever happened to his tail? His friends missed the old Churchill. 

This was a funny tale that turned into a sad tale. The author spun a tale about a very self centered pig.  The illustrations of Churchill trying on the tails was hilarious and will have children giggling over the silliness, as did I when I saw him with a fish tail. What an imagination the author and illustrator must have.  

Most importantly his tale teaches the importance of friends.  Be sure to make time for your friends.  Maybe you could read this tale of tails with them.

I highly recommend this book. 

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
