This hilarious story of a pangolin with an identity crisis will be loved by fans of Penguin Problems and Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great.

Poor pangolin--he's trying to explain who he is, but all the other animals keep getting confused.

You have scales--like a snake? A long tongue--like a frog? A strong scent--like a skunk? You can roll in a ball--like an armadillo? And a name that sounds a lot like...penguin? We love penguins!

"No, no, no! I am not a penguin! There are no penguins here!"

But then, just when it couldn't get worse, a penguin arrives!!

What's a poor pangolin got to do to be understood?!
