Same Same but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw, Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw (Illustrator)

Synopsis

Elliot lives in America, and Kailash lives in India. They are pen pals. By exchanging letters and pictures, they learn that they both love to climb trees, have pets, and go to school. Their worlds might look different, but they are actually similar. Same, same. But different!
