Why: I think I read about this book on a blog somewhere. It was definitely an online recommendation.
Pros: This is one of my absolute favorite picture books. I literally can’t say enough good things about it. The writing is brilliant and the illustrations are such a perfect compliment to the text that’s it’s hard to believe it wasn’t one person doing both. It is colorful and fun with a great message about friendship. Buy this book now. Seriously, if you don’t have it, do yourself a favor, you won’t regret it. I’m including one of the humorous illustrations just to give you a taste of how good this book is.
Funny Story: No joke, I laughed out loud when I read this for the first time. That’s saying a lot.
Durability: 4 bite marks. It’s holding up really well, especially for how much we read it.
