Deeply satisfying story of friendship, in easy reader format. A lovely story for any age. Charming watercolor illustrations, a great book.

"Goose spoke.

'Pig,' whispered Goose, 'you are wonderful.'

'Really?' Pig said, blushing, 'Me?'

'Yes,' said Goose, 'you.'"

This book echoes the charming sensibility of Arnold Lobel’s classic beginner reader, Frog and Toad (1970). Despite their differences, Pig and Goose develop a beautiful friendship. I hope to see Rebecca Bond develop this title into a series!

Also, I love Bond's use of soft watercolour hues - they add to the charm of this special book.
