The Boy with Two Belly Buttons
My 8 year daughter is curious about anatomy in general. She came home last night and asked me why her little friend who is a girl has a moustache. They are starting to question things around them and themselves. Now best selling author of (Freakonomics) Stephen J. Dubner inquires what if a boy had two belly buttons. An interesting question, and what happens with this dilemma in this boy’s microcosm. Will he be accepted or rejected from this strange anomaly. Christoph Niemann spins us a lavish landscape of turmoil for this boy’s plight into the world he is thrust into with two belly buttons.
Solomon never thinks it’s strange that he has two belly buttons—until he finds out that no one else does. Is having that extra belly button good or bad? Things look worse and worse until an unexpected encounter makes Solomon appreciate what it means to be a little bit different.
