Product Details


An oft-told learning journey that all friend groups must navigate; this simple telling may resonate in ways others do not.
—Kirkus Reviews

Elliott presents a pair of best friends, the two Tims, who delight in doing everything together. That is, until Tom comes along…The text’s limited vocabulary and the strong visual cues provided by Alborozo’s loose, sketchy pen and watercolor illustrations make this a good choice for emerging readers. The visual punch line at the end of the book will be familiar to anyone who has experienced the challenges and joys of making new friends while keeping the old. A sweet, simple friendship story that will have wide appeal.
—School Library Journal

Elliot collaborates with Alborozo to produce a charming story that addresses a common problem among inseparable friends…Alborozo’s playful, cartoonish scenes—mixed media illustrations with squiggly ink lines and soft washes of color—are a wonderful complement to Elliot’s simple yet engaging text. Closing on an encouraging note with a clever twist, this makes for a great story time read as well as a delightful educational tool.
