Something Else tries to be like the others, but everything he does shows how different he is. Then Something turns up and wants to be friends, but Something Else isn’t sure that he’s at all like him…

The story contains topics like inner and outer perception, construction of identity, defining limits and limiting others, diversity and appreciation, acceptance and tolerance. The story owns characteristics of a fable.
The novel might inherit a central role during a workshop or can rather be dealt with marginally. We use different motifs of the storyline.
