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.
