it was amazing

“Do you want to be my friend?” asks the little mouse of a long-tailed creature.
Not really. Turning the page, we see that the tail’s owner is too busy munching grass.
Perhaps the owner of this tail . . . .
Oh no! This tail’s owner is hungry!
What’s interesting about Do You Want to Be My Friend? is that the pictures are mysterious enough not only for the three- and four-year-old set, but also for five and overs. And, of course, the fact that the author has rendered a complete plot and sub-plot in just eight words.
The conclusion is highly satisfactory. It ends with the right word (just one), danger, suspense, and . . . . Oops! No spoilers!
