Here's a book that I'd call a first-chapter graphic novel, illustrated by the accomplished Harry Bliss (Diary of a Worm, about a thousand New Yorker covers, and more). Kate DiCamillo perfectly captures the difficulty of making new friends using dog protagonist Rosie, who longs for friendship, yet isn't sure how to get it, even after her owner, George, takes her to the dog park. I don't recall a lot of friendship stories that are this honest about social anxiety: "It makes Rosie feel lonely to look at so many strange dogs."

I especially loved the subplot about Fifi's collar.
