The Lovereading4Kids comment

Mabel and Me are an unlikely couple of friends to outsiders but that doesn’t matter because they just are each other’s very bestest, bestest of friends. It is hard to define exactly why but, when they meet first a Famous French Photographer and then a Prima Ballerina, they know that they will stand up for each other through thick and thin!

Synopsis

Mabel and Me - Best of Friends by Mark Sperring

Meet Mabel and Me in this hilarious picture book, as they explore what puts the 'best' in 'best friends'! Mabel and Me are strolling down a strolly street, when Mabel asks a Hugely Harrowing and Diabolically Difficult question about why Me thinks they are best friends. Join this oddest of odd couples in their very first adventure to discover the answer - but be prepared for a large dose of mistaken identity along the way! Mark Sperring's sparkling text is a rollicking read-aloud that delights in language and rhythm and is perfectly complemented by Sarah Warburton's terrifically warm and witty illustrations.
