June and August by Vivian Walsh


June and August by Vivian Walsh

From the co-creator of the bestselling Olive, the Other Reindeer comes a tale about friendship. Vivian Walsh is the co-creator of several bestselling books for children. In June and August she once again makes a misunderstanding the humorous but pivotal moment that brings together two very unlikely friends. One night in the jungle, June is thrilled to see a shooting star, while August loves looking at the moon. Although they can't see each other in the dark, the two promise to meet again the next day, but when the next morning dawns, they face a terrible dilemma. How are June and August going to recognize each other? This imaginative story explores the concept that the greatest friendships can come to be, if you are willing to overlook differences.
