Product Details


It’s a lovely feeling, when you’re young, to share a secret name or a private song with your best friend. That’s definitely the sentiment held by two boon companions in Juliette MacIver’s “Yak and Gnu” a comical rhyming picture book that celebrates the bonds of special friendship even as it registers the comeuppance that friends may feel when their treasured intimacy proves to be less exceptional than they thought.
—The Wall Street Journal

The perfectly rhymed bits of text get progressively more hilarious, and kids (maybe the teller, too) will be in stitches by the time they see the flotilla of gorillas…A boatload of fun.
—Booklist Online

Good for libraries in need of rhyming, tongue-twisting stories or books featuring animal antics.
—School Library Journal

Audiences will delight in the chipper repetition, comic internal rhymes, and rueful cumulative tagline…The Seussian silliness of the verse makes this a sure bet for kids looking for something gnu.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

—Kirkus Reviews

—School Library Connection
