Yuna and the Thing About Being Liked

Important message wrapped up in a sugar-sweet package: Not everyone has to like you – be yourself!

Yuna is still quite new to the human world. As a little dog, there are lots of exciting things to discover. But some things are not so easy to understand. For example, the thing about being liked. Her family, the birds, the other dogs in the park, the postman and the baker – they all like Yuna. Only her neighbour, who can play the flute so beautifully, doesn’t like her. Why is that?

Yuna tries all sorts of things to please him. But the harder she tries, the grumpier her neighbour gets. Yuna no longer understands the world, what is she doing wrong? Until her friends make her realise that she is just right the way she is and that not everyone has to like you – the most important thing is that Yuna likes herself.
