Read full description of the books:
In general I love Serendipity Books, but I'm used to thinking of them as cute fluff with simple messages - I wasn't expecting one on obesity. :/
The book shows how Catundra became fat through emotional eating and how bullying makes that even worse. It also shows that she can take control of her life by small changes and determination, and how she can find other ways to be happy. If that was the full message, I'd give this book six stars for taking on something very important and doing it well.
But the mole who helps Catundra tells her that losing weight will make her beautiful, and that once she is beautiful and not fat, there will be nothing to bully her about. After she loses weight "the other creatures in the forest didn't call her names because she had slimmed down to the prettiest cat they had ever seen." Right. Because only fat people are/deserve to be bullied.
This is one of the few picture books I've read that I probably would not allow a child to read. Not without discussing the ways in which it is wrong, anyway.
