Do You Want To Be My Friend?

Publisher: Puffin

'Do you want to be my friend?' Asked just once, this simple question starts a little mouse's journey through this almost wordless picture book, seeking the perfect companion.

Mouse considers a veritable menagerie of animals; on each page, he meets only a tail, then, over the page, the tail’s owner (and potential friend) is revealed – although none of them is quite right.

Finally, mouse meets another mouse: 'Do you want to be my friend?' 'Yes!' comes the reply!

The repetitive pattern of this book has a lovely simplicity. It is fun guessing the animals and comparing sizes and shapes, and the illustrations’ vivid colours and boldly visible brushwork inspire creativity - and there's a guest appearance by the Very Hungry Caterpillar!
