This brilliant book is all about aspirations, how your friends can help you , even if you don't fulfil them. I particularly like the various different splits of story and pictures across the double pages. The pictures are ideally suited to the narrative, gentle, reflective, almost dreamy. I have given copies to several children, aged three to six, and they all love it. The paperback is the same (large) size, but the colours are not quite so intense as the hardback.
