The creature of Habit is a big, cute puffball of a creature, who lives on the island of Habit, and is indeed an actually, 100% "creature of habit." He has a beloved daily routine—3 pineapples + 2 bananas for breakfast, say hello to the fish and collect the best seashells by the seashore—and he happily sticks to it...
...Until an unexpected visitor arrives on the island. The newcomer eagerly joins in on the creature's daily routine at first, but then easily and naturally deviates off on tangents of his own, disconcerting the creature of Habit.
But eventually, the creature's curiosity is piqued, he joins in and discovers that the twin pleasures of new discovery and beloved routine can live side-by-side in harmony.
Beautifully illustrated, funny and full of heart, this is the perfect story with which to mix up your own daily reading routine!
