Friendship Surprise (The)
by Giorgio Volpe
Age Range: Under_5
In this follow-up story by Italian author Giorgio Volpe, translated by Angus Yuen-Killick, spring is fast approaching and Little Red is looking forward to being reunited with his best friend Hazel as she emerges from her hibernation. But over winter while Hazel was asleep Little Red made another friend, Brock the badger and although he can’t wait for the two friends to meet, he is anxious that each one will be unhappy if they find out about the other. Unsure of what to do Little Red tries his best to keep it a secret.
Volpe’s gentle message that it’s okay to have more than one friend accompanied by another set of winsome pencil and crayon illustrations by artist Paolo Proietti provides another charming tale about Little Red and his friends.
