Best friends can be rib-tickling when you meet them through the happy pen of Todd Parr. So start turning those pages and get ready to have some friend fun with skunks and even people who are far, far away. Turns out friends can be animals or people but they all like to have fun with you, forgive you when you make a mistake - like stepping on a tender paw -and best of all they just plain old like you for being who you are.
Trademark silliness abounds while the measure of true friendship stretches higher and higher and higher with all kinds of hilarious possibilities. Great read aloud for getting children to talk about what they like in a friend and maybe even what they could think about to be a better one.
