The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling author Eric Carle whose The Very Hungry Caterpillar has entertained generations of children has created a wonderful story about friendship. When a little boy finds that he is all alone – his best friend and constant companion has gone – he sets out on a long and varied search to find a new one. The mountains are high and the rivers are swift; the forests are dark and the grassy meadows are alarmingly wide but all must be crossed. Will the boy find what he is searching for? The wonderful illustrations to this story reflect the tenderness at its heart.
Friends by Eric Carle
A new tale of friendship from Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Once there were two friends who were always together...But one day, the boy was all alone. His friend was gone. The hero of this delightful new story from Eric Carle makes up his mind to find his friend. Undaunted, he sets off on a quest that takes him across a swift cold river, over a tall mountain, through a broad meadow and a forest full of dark shadows. He sleeps under starry skies and dreams of floating on clouds before finally being reunited with his beloved friend. This wonderfully whimsical tale is a celebration of the value of friendship and the power of a child's imagination, captured in the simple prose and magnificent colourful artwork fans of Eric Carle's work know and love so well.
