Halibut Jackson is shy and prefers not to be noticed, so he makes his own suits that help him to blend into the background. He wears his flowered suit to the park and a book-themed suit to the library. When he is invited to a party at the palace, he almost doesn't go because he is so bashful. He decides to make a palace-themed suit so that he can attend the party without being noticed. How was he to know it would be an outdoor garden party?
The Preschool Class enjoyed searching for Halibut Jackson in the illustrations and students were excited to see how Halibut Jackson got over his shyness.
Children in the Preschool Class were able to make a connection between Halibut Jackson and Jeremy of Jeremy Draws a Monster. In fact, when they saw Jeremy looking out his bedroom window watching the neighborhood children play, one child exclaimed, "Jeremy doesn't want to me noticed- just like Halibut Jackson!"
