Η Μέλπω η μοναδικήMoniue hates her school uniform Brown and blue Who wants to wear brown and blue Moniue wants to be different One day she find. This book was originally published in Greece which is why everyone's name in the story is Greek except for Moniue which is a French name According to the verso the original name for the main character was Melpo but when Polina Papanikolaou translated it she changed the name to Moniue I guess so that it would rhyme with uniue I believe though that Monika is an accepted Greek name Anyway this story reminded me for all the world of Robert Munsch's Stephanie's Ponytail which also deals with someone trying to be different but every change she makes is copied by her classmates This is what happens to Moniue until she finds a way all her own to look different one that the other kids can't readily copy I thought the story was cute with a clever ending and I'm sure kids would love it especially in combination with the above mentioned Robert Munsch book
