YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND!

You Will Be My Friend!
Today is the day the exuberant Lucy is going to make a new friend! But she finds it’s harder than she had thought–she accidentally ruins the giraffe’s breakfast and is much too big for the frogs’ pond. Just when she’s about to give up, an unexpected friend finds her, and loves her just the way she is.

An Irma Simonton Black and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature Honor Book (2012)

“Splendid artwork … I click with this book. Brown has pushed his style past its smoother beginnings … Who knows how he does it, really? The appeal of You Will Be My Friend! is as deep a mystery as friendship, but I’m not interested in delving into its mysteries. I just want to take it to lunch.”—Reviewed by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) for The New York Times Book Review

“Charming … this title eschews the cute.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The mixed-media art, featuring woodsy cartoon backgrounds, and the omniscient narration combine to make this an even funnier follow-up to Children Make Terrible Pets (2010).”—Booklist
