Not Friends

Not Friends

“Many children’s books deal with the occasional conflict between friends, but this is a fresh, lively addition to the pack. From the spotted end pages on, we are up close and personal in Giraffe’s and Bird’s world, which is full of clouds, telephone wires, and TENSION….Sentences are short and in the present tense with verbs often in bold. The lack of background detail accentuates the actions and the warm browns and blues of the illustrations will reassure readers that this conflict might not be as bad as they think. In the end, we are reminded that actions speak louder than words.”—Booklist starred review
