Lucille the bear is back in this adorable new picture book from Peter Brown! She’s moved on from trying to get a pet… now she wants a friend! But finding a new friend is harder than it looks. As the faux-pas add up, and her attempts become more and more desperate, poor Lucille becomes despondent. Doesn’t anybody want to be her friend?

Lucille’s lack of social skills will leave little ones rolling on the floor, but may also serve to provide a surprising element of solidarity. It IS hard to make friends, and Lucille’s battle will allow kids to feel comforted by the fact that it’s not just hard for them. They may even be better at it than Lucille, and even she's (eventually) able to find a like-minded flamingo. Adorably illustrated in the same style as Children Make Terrible Pets, this new picture books has the makings of a contemporary classic. For ages 3+
