Being different can be tough. But also very, very funny!

There’s big news in Orchidville: Mayor Orcnest and his gruesome wife, Orcaleah, are expecting a boy orclet, and the orc community has high expectations about how divinely hairy and smelly he’ll be, as the son of the stinkiest, nastiest orc-dad of all. So the shock is palpable when the highly-respected, putrid couple instead produce an orc who isn’t ugly: Adorcable is a blond, green-eyed wonder with the finest manners and the biggest smile anyone’s ever seen. Orcnest’s rank reputation is in danger!
