Summary
An NPR Best Book of the Year!

New York Times bestselling author Julie Fogliano and Caldecott Honor winner Jillian Tamaki come together to tell a delightful story of first friendship.

she is my best friend i think
i never had a best friend so i'm not sure
but i think she is a really good best friend
because when we were drawing
she drew me
and i drew her.

What is a best friend, if not someone who laughs with you the whole entire day, especially when you pretend to be a pickle? This pitch-perfect picture book is a sweetly earnest, visually stunning celebration of the magic of friendship.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Fogliano (Just In Case You Want to Fly, 2019) has a knack for capturing the emotional tenor of very specific little kid experiences, and her latest, in collaboration with Tamaki (They Say Blue, 2018), is no different. Two girls, one pale with ginger hair, the other with sleek black hair and glasses, joyously run around a playground, sharing jokes, games, and quiet time, while Fogliano's lines narrate the redhead's inner monologue: i have a new friend / and her hair is black / and it shines / and it shines / and she always laughs at everything. Their spontaneous, imaginative play lacks logical sequence, but it's clear from Tamaki's exuberant artwork, in a limited palette of warm, peachy pinks and deep, earthy greens, that logic doesn't matter one bit. The girls quack like ducks; one chases the other with a spooky leaf; the redhead pretends to be a pickle and through it all, they bounce around the page spreads with sheer happiness on their faces. Then their day of fun abruptly comes to an end, when it's revealed that the girls only just met. Tamaki's masterful grasp of faces and mirthful body language, echoed in the looping, lively movement of the plants and animals in the background, is a captivating complement to Fogliano's plainspoken but evocative text, and the combination is sure to resonate with anyone who's ever made a fast friend.--Sarah Hunter Copyright 2020 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""I have a new friend/ and her hair is black/ and it shines/ and it shines/ and she always laughs at everything." Fogliano (Just in Case You Want to Fly) captures the feeling of giddy infatuation when a child first meets another and feels an instant bond--it's an early form of falling in love. The speaker is a wide-eyed girl with a red ponytail; the new friend wears round glasses and a delighted look. "She is so smart," the speaker confides--she can strip a leaf down to make a "skeleton hand," and weaves together the stems of trodden-on flowers so they don't look so smashed ("she helps me fix them/ sort of"). Swinging, dancing in dizzy spirals, and games of chase lead to a string of new discoveries ("she is my best friend/ i think/ i've never had a best friend," the girl confides, "so i'm not sure"). Rust and olive vignettes by Tamaki (They Say Blue) burst with energy that seems boundless, and closer inspection reveals elegantly controlled draftsmanship portraying muffled laughter and scribbled chalk lines. Young children have big feelings, and discovering someone their own age who adores them back is an event worth celebrating. Ages 4--8. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Mar.)"
