I just discovered this book - immediately recognizing the illustrator's style. The pictures are eye-catching and my son, 3 1/2 years old, was completely engrossed.
Only issue - it made me CRY. Oh yes, in the story's pinnacle moment - I barely could keep it together to keep reading. I didn't expect that from a childrens book.
I will purchase this book for xmas and upcoming birthday presents for the kids in my life. Story of friendship, imagination and pushing the limits of the comfort zone. Great story for kids and adults alike.

A beautifully illustrated children's book that will touch the hearts of parents and children alike. With gentle humour, the story unfolds, as does the heart of Pete, as he slowly warms to his new, but wildly unorthodox friend, Pickles.
