A tale of friendship from Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Once there were two friends who were always together... But one day, the boy was all alone. His friend was gone.
The hero of this delightful story from Eric Carle makes up his mind to find his friend. Undaunted, he sets off on a quest that takes him across a swift cold river, over a tall mountain, through a broad meadow and a forest full of dark shadows. He sleeps under starry skies and dreams of floating on clouds before finally being reunited with his beloved friend.
This wonderfully whimsical tale is a celebration of the value of friendship and the power of a child's imagination, captured in the simple prose and magnificent colourful artwork fans of Eric Carle's work know and love so well.
