Product Details


Jenkins’ text captures the dynamics of children’s play (and their peer-to-peer relationships) with precision, humor, and style. Kids will enjoy watching the characters mouth off and act out with abandon, knowing that all will end well…Great for reading aloud, this picture book portrays childhood friendships in a witty, perceptive fashion.
—Booklist (starred review)

A very funny and fine tribute to a very young friendship.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Gay (the Stella and Sam series) uses delicate ink-and-wash drawings to find humor in all kinds of places…Jenkins (A Fine Dessert), meanwhile, nails the high-intensity, high-energy nature of Tiger and Badger’s friendship as her story zigzags from selfishness to sharing, offense to reconciliation, tantrum to teamwork.
—Publishers Weekly

While picture books centering on pals coping with disagreements are common, this gentle and quirky addition is sure to please. A lighthearted yet spot-on look at friendship from a child’s point of view.
—School Library Journal

In her brief, clear narrative, Jenkins presents, with keen precision, the kind of antagonizing behavior in which youthful friends engage…Gay’s art, in watercolor, acrylic ink, acrylic paint, and pencil, effectively captures both the motion and emotion of the furry friends.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
