Written by Helen Oxenbury

Friends Synopsis

The reissue of a classic baby board book to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's great contribution to children's books. Babies make all kinds of friends - rabbits, dogs, guinea pigs, birds, cats, hens and ducks. Helen Oxenbury's gorgeous illustrations not only capture the creatures the baby meets, but every bit of the baby's delight in them. No one draws babies like Helen Oxenbury. Her warm, affectionate depictions have been loved and cherished by children and adults around the world for over 30 years. In 1981, this groundbreaking little book was one of the most innovative board books ever published and is now considered a classic of the genre.
