When Pierre heads up the mountain in his red car in search of a friend, he finds three good friends along the way. Goat, Sheep, and Bear are all looking for friends and adventure too, and they join him, even helping him push the car to the mountain top when it breaks down. But failed brakes cause a mishap, and the animals are all stranded on the other side of the mountain. Still, sometimes true friends turn out to be right under our noses all along. I loved the repetitive phrases contained in the book, and the animals' willingness to help each other, but the softly hued ink and watercolor illustrations become a bit scary when all of the animals are thrown from the vehicle when it crashes. Despite their positive attitudes and the book's positive message, there is no way they could have escaped that wreck unscathed.
