A stranger walks into this hilariously crooked city and wants to fix things up! A fun picture book for the little bookworms.

Being able to state your ideas and beliefs and trying to prove them, is an ability that even most adults lack. The crooked city is the story of a zebra that believes everything is crooked in the city and nothing is straight; and although this puts him in trouble, he tells his opinion to every one of the citizens and even to the King. To teach self-confidence and critical thinking to children, this story can be of great help.
