Friends Come in All Sizes

Written By Raven Howell

Illustrated By Audrey Day

Patience and kindness are important when you want to make new friends, but it's hard not to consider what it would be like to have a manly giraffe or chilled-out polar bear as a pal.

A friendship mission prompts two boys to regard would-be companions of many shapes and size, and their imaginative adventures hatch brand new, unexpected buddies.

Hardcover 11"x8.5" ages 2-10
