That's What Friends Are For by Julia Hubery


That's What Friends Are For by Julia Hubery

Archie Bear is a hero! No blackberry bush is too prickly and no tree too tall to stop him helping a friend in need. But all this helping Rabbit, Moley and Mouse is a messy business! Soon icky juice and sticky mud have covered the new jumper Archie's mummy knitted for him. Oh no! Whatever will he do? A reassuring tale of friendship for all brave little heroes! This sweet, funny tale is written by Julia Hubery (A Friend Like You, Who Loves Baby) and illustrated by Caroline Pedler (Don't Wake the Bear, Hare! and There's No Such Thing As Monsters).
