Just the ticket for children who are developing social skills and learning what it is to be a friend.--Kirkus Reviews Scheffler's chunky mixed-media paintings capture the intense emotions that often accompany young friendships, and he deftly uses humor to prevent the story from being overly didactic.--Publishers Weekly The story and illustrations are packed with warmth, humor, and sympathetic understanding of the little dramas of young children's lives. Text is clear and black against boldly colored backgrounds, and the bright illustrations are filled with humorous details.--School Library Journal
