Product Details


uthor/illustrator James does a marvelous job of creating a playful story about the serious idea of stepping outside the familiar in friendships—an idea stupendously amplified with his light-filled watercolor-and-ink illustrations, showing a grand diversity of people in a bustling city setting. Diversity in friendships is brought to happy, lively life in this effervescent picture book.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

James’s warm ink and watercolor illustrations capture the personalities and funny details about the canines and humans along with their unbreakable connections. Steeped with meaning (and metaphor), this seemingly simple tale offers new discoveries and insights with every read.
—The Horn Book
