Simon’s Skin by Nidhi Kamra and illustrated by Diane Brown is a children’s book based on accepting your own skin. This acceptance stems from the experiences of the protagonist in the plot, Simon, who tries a couple of skins but finds all of them boring, and Simon doesn’t like boring. He tries the skin of various animals like a porcupine, chameleon, firefly, snake, and even a fox but all of them end up being disastrously boring for Simon as he gets ignored, laughed at, or uncomfortable in all their skins.
