Friends shape who we are. They make us laugh. They fill us with fun. They stand by us during life's ups and downs. And even when we disagree with our friends, if they're tried-and-true, they don't stay bent out of shape for long. That's the beauty of a good buddy. This joyous book rejoices in the simple beauties of friendship, and reminds readers of all ages that it's good to have a group of pals.

"Playful and pleasant, with a softly sunny background and emphatic bold type, the book asks little readers to look closely at composition, while delivering its simple message. Sure to be a hit."


"Friends come in all shapes, but these four just may be the sweetest."
