A Friend Like You by Julia Hubery and illustrated by Caroline Pedler from Good Books is reviewed by Andrew. Andrew is a fan of reading and enjoys mysteries and adventure stories. He spends his free time playing sports and building new creations with Legos.
This is a story about Panda and Monkey who set off on an adventure on the first day of spring. They set off to the highest mountain meadows to see its secrets. Panda and Monkey enjoy the company of one another as they discover beautiful creatures in nature on their way to the highest meadow. Although Monkey traveled too quickly for Panda, they both enjoyed the sights along the way. Their friendship blooms along the way as they see the most amazing sight of a thousand butterflies at the top of the highest meadow. The sight was worth the long journey to the top!
I enjoyed reading this story about friendship and adventure. I also liked the soft looking illustrations in the book. They are beautiful! I think any child who likes adventure and friendship will enjoy this book.
