Churchill is rather proud of it's tale. Then, one day, it disappears. Despite trying on a variety of different tales, some of which add to his personality, Churchill discovers that his friends are what is truly important. A tale, despite how awesome it can be, can never be better than friends.
I am going to assume that this book was originally published overseas, since it has an original publication date of 2012, but was just released here in March 2014. Reminiscent of Eeyore, but with a more flamboyant personality, Churchill's Tale of Tails is a fun story with a good deal of silliness. I personally loved the peacock tale. The illustrations and expressions of the various animal cast were cleverly done and there was great use of the white space on the page. As is expected, there is a nice little lesson to learn, but it never felt heavy handed.
