A children’s illustrated book about acceptance even when we meet someone who is different than us. Everyone has special talents that can benefit others. Ortimer decides to make his home in a new town. The people of the town turn him away because he has a facial deformity. Ortimer makes friends with a bear and a young boy of the town. When the people of the town are having trouble with their lily harvest because of a drought, Ortimer comes to the rescue with his special ability to make it rain. The story is about three unlikely characters who come together through a special friendship. They show others how to accept one another on the inside and not how they look on the outside.
