Reviews

"Tallec's illustrations reflect the quietly amusing quality of the text while giving each character a distinctive look and creating a beautiful forest backdrop with stately trees, filtered light, and seasonal changes of colors. The idea of finding a friend will resonate with many children, and Squirrel's first-person narrative reads aloud well."--Booklist

"Demonstrates the value of a best friend--or two."--starred, Foreword Reviews

"Through a distinctive first-person narrative voice that sometimes verges on stream of consciousness, this book explores the question of what makes a best friend and whether it's possible to have more than one. . . The characters' simply drawn faces are evocative, their expressions rendered humorously hyperbolic through their stylized cartoon-like eyes."--The Horn Book Magazine

"Tallec's charming, child-friendly story captures an ever-present concern of many readers, young and old, and offers an open ending that invites discussion. An outstanding read-aloud for adults and children, bursting with humor and warmth."--School Library Journal
