Today is the day the exuberant Lucy is going to make a new friend! But she finds it's harder than she had thought—she accidentally ruins the giraffe's breakfast and is much too big for the frogs' pond. Just when she's about to give up, an unexpected friend finds her, and loves her just the way she is.

This heartwarming story offers a unique and humor-filled spin on the all-important themes of persistence and friendship.- quoted from Goodreads

Lucy is looking for a friend. Some who will do cartwheels with her, have a picnic and climb trees with her. But what Lucy doesn't realize is trying to force someone to be your friend never works. Neither does yelling, "You Will Be Mine Friend". Will Lucy's over enthusiastic ways get the better of her or will she find a friend?

This is my first Peter Brown book and after reading about Lucy, I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of his books. His illustrations are fabulous, his writing is engaging, humorous and teaches kids an important lesson about making friends. I enjoyed a few laughs with this book and getting to meet Lucy. I'd definitely recommend picking this book up!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
