A capybara is not a mouse, or a beaver, or a bear, and has all sorts of surprising traits you will soon discover. But while every capybara has teeny tiny ears and a gigantic nose, this endearing capybara happens to love poetry and the opera, and even dressing up as a whale! He speaks candidly about his experiences and feelings, and he likes to find common ground with others, like his best friend, a little bird. Although he may appear to be a tough guy, he still likes cuddles and care. Michela Fabbri's irresistibly charming illustrations and witty monologue reveal the wonderful things to discover by trying new things, learning about something or someone you don't know, and embracing community and family.
About the Author
Michela Fabbri lives in Genova, Italy. She operates a small B&B, and creates comics on her daily life. This is her first book.
"A capybara explains just who he is. Fabbri's soft colored-pencil drawings punctuated with thin ink linework are textured but minimalist-with the white page as the background, the titular subject remains the focus. A gentle, offbeat sketch."
- Kirkus Reviews—-
"I Am a Capybara is debut author Michaela Fabbri's fun and fanciful portrait of one particularly self-aware capybara, who sees life as a series of small delights--including the joys of dressing like a whale!"
