Bigums is a school-aged rhino that gets teased because of her large stature. She struggles with acceptance from her peers, but with a little hard advice from her mother she realizes that being herself is exactly who she needs to be in order to sustain self-worth and even be an inspiration to someone else who is going through a similar experience.
Bigums is a fun declaration of living life equally. It speaks to the reader a message of fair treatment, acceptance, and despite the unfair treatment of others, it promotes a positive self-image. It is colorful, fun, and introduces one method of dealing with the issue of bullying.
