Ever since You Are (Not) Small by Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant came out in 2014, I have been a big fan of the book and each of the following companion books.
Recently, I learned that there would be a fourth book in the series. The latest book by the creative team of Kang and Weyant looks at changes in friendship. How do you introduce a new friend into the existing friendship pair. When you’re friends, sometimes three’s a crowd and sometime it is just right.
Two fuzzy friends are having a fun playdate when a new pal hops in. As the day continues, each friend feels left out at times. It isn’t so easy to figure out how to act when everything seems to change. With humor and heart, the beloved characters from Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner You Are (Not) Small navigate a friendship triangle as only they can.
I asked Anna and Christopher to share a quick thought about their latest book. Here is what they had to say:
“We are so excited to share the next installment in the lives of our fuzzy creatures! In WE ARE (NOT) FRIENDS, a third party enters the picture, suddenly shifting the balance, something all kids (and adults) experience in their friendships.” –Anna Kang & Christopher Weyant
So, are you ready for the cover…
I am excited to say that this may be one of my favorites of the series. I can really see young children connecting with our fuzzy friends and the challenge of welcoming in a new friend. I look forward to sharing more when we get closer to the release date.
Mark your calendar. We Are (NOT) Friends will be out on May 1, 2019.
