About the book: From bestselling author Ame Dyckman and illustrator Eda Kaban, The New Kid Has Fleas is a hilarious picture book about a new kid in school who appears to have been raised by wolves.

There's a new kid in class, and they're . . . different.

They dress different. Talk different. Eat different.

And the word on the playground is: they have fleas.

But, one of their classmates wonders, what if we got to know the new kid? Visited their home (wolves' den)? Met their parents (wolves)? Shared a snack (squirrels)?

Maybe then the new kid wouldn't be so bad after all.

School’s in session for a howlingly fun “lesson” in preconceptions, differences, rumors, karma, and not just being the new kid, but befriending them.
