Here's a charming story about creativity and conformity, Mo's Mustache by Ben Clanton. Mo orders a mustache, 'a BIG, BLACK, beautiful mustache.' But everyone around him likes it so much that they copy him ... 'Now EVERYBODY has a mustache.'

So Mo packs up his mustache and starts a new fashion trend - a scarf. 'Soon EVERYBODY has a scarf.' (Even the invisible monster wears an invisible one!) Mo is not amused that everyone copies him ... until they explain why they're doing it. Which generates yet another idea in Mo's creative brain.

The ending made me smile. And the entire story just might make little ones think about how it's flattering to be copied, but perhaps even more fun to be a trendsetter oneself.
