Rosie Is My Best Friend

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Review

Rosie and her best friend spend every day together and it’s fantastic. They do all sorts of things like playing before everyone gets up in the morning, helping the adults with the gardening and shopping, learning new tricks, and getting very muddy in the park. They even go on the most brilliant adventures, exploring the depths of the oceans and the even outer space! Even if there are scary monsters lurking in the dark woods, they stick together, making them the very best of friends.

When you start to read the story of Rosie and her best friend, you believe that the narrative is from the girl’s point of view, but there is a great twist towards the end to delight young ones who are reading along. 

Ali Pye’s eye for pattern and bold use of colours make the illustrations pop from the pages and brings warmth to the characters. This is a heartwarming, joyful and fun tale of friendship.
