Synopsis

Best Frints in the Whole Universe by Antoinette Portis

Yelfred and Omek have been best frints since they were little blobbies. They play and snack, and sometimes they even fight, all in a language similar to but slightly different from, English. When Omek decides to borrow Yelfred's new spaceship without asking (and then crashes it), it sparks the biggest fight yet. Can these two best frints make up and move on? Award-winning picture book creator Antoinette Portis delivers a new universe of cleverness and imagination in this hilarious, sweet, and otherworldly book about friendship.

Publishers Weekly, starred Portis

-media illustrations feature simple shapes lots of circles and triangles vivid hues, thick black lines, and pop art like textures. Horn Book, starred
