When Robert Hoge was born, he had a tumor the size of a tennis ball in the middle of his face and short, twisted legs. Surgeons removed the tumor and made him a new nose from one of his toes. Amazingly, he survived—with a face that would never be the same.
Strangers stared at him. Kids called him names, and adults could be cruel, too. Everybody seemed to agree that he was “ugly.” But Robert refused to let his face define him. He played pranks, got into trouble, had adventures with his big family, and finally found a sport that was perfect for him to play. And Robert came face to face with the biggest decision of his life, he followed his heart.
This poignant memoir about overcoming bullying and thriving with disabilities shows that what makes us “ugly” also makes us who we are. It features a reflective foil cover and black-and-white illustrations throughout.

Saltwater versus freshwater fish
The name ‘fish’ is a very broad term, meaning that it refers to many different types of animals, from sharks to goldfish to lungfish. Since there are more areas covered with water than there is dry land, fish are all around the world, and quite possibly outnumber most other animals.
In older times, a fish used to be anything that swam. A beaver was a fish, for instance, or a frog. Now, the definition is narrower, but still has many different creatures in it.
In this book, you’ll read about fish and how they work, and then you’ll read about different types of fish. However, since there are thousands upon thousands of different kinds of fish, it’s really only scratching the surface of different fish species.
From the endangered coelacanth to the common goldfish, all fish are interesting in their own way.
