Revising an idea about a character

I am trying to find a picture book that would be good for a minilesson where a character turns out to be different than we first think and we have to revise our idea of her/him. Any ideas?

My first thought is the Eve Bunting book The Wednesday Surprise because you assume that the grandmother is helping her granddaughter to improve her oral reading, when actually she is illiterate and it is her granddaughter who is teaching the grandmother to read.

I also have a book about a cat (it is at school so I can't tell you the name or author) that I read to my class every year without letting them see the pictures. I tell them to draw what they are picturing. When the story is done, I read them the story and show the pictures and the "cat" is actually an elephant. If you are interested, reply and I will get the info at school.
