Two very different friends come to a special understanding of their relationship.

Prudence and Moxie are like apples and oranges, up and down, sweet and sour.
But despite differences, they’re still best friends.

See, there isn’t much that Moxie won’t do—especially when dared.
Dare her to kissy-face smoosh against the shark tank?
Consecutive twists on an upside-down amusement park ride?
Hardly a challenge.
How about a fast, fast turbo-cart ride all the way down High Horse Hill?
No problem!
It’s enough to drive quiet, sensible Prudence crazy.
Especially when Moxie balks at the one thing that’s very important to Prudence .s.s.
Can Moxie learn to try something that makes her feel anything but brave? Triple dog dare you to find out!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Moxie’s reckless personality assumes obsessive proportions in the amusing acrylic-and-collage illustrations, which show her gleefully engaged in one outrageous dare after another while bemused Prudence watches in horror. Their imaginative representation as whimsical critters (moose and raccoon) adds to the humor. This fanciful foray should tickle readers who have their own mismatched friends."—Kirkus

". . . full of imaginative details and delightfully quirky illustrations . . . The eccentric characters have appeal . . ."—Publishers Weekly

"Cantone’s whimsical mixed-media illustration style makes clever use of stitching in the intricately bordered pages. The art subtly complements the text with its use of opposites, playing bold colors and squiggly and straight lines against one another."—Booklist
