Friends Stick Together by Hannah E. Harrison

A touching and timeless story about finding friendship in unlikely places from the award-winning creator of Extraordinary Jane

Rupert is a rhinoceros of refined sensibilities. Levi, the new tickbird in class, is not. He burps the alphabet, tells corny jokes, and does really embarrassing air guitar solos. Worse, he lands right on Rupert and is determined to be Rupert's symbiotic best pal! Rupert wants him gone. But when Levi finally does bug off, Rupert finds the peace and quiet a little boring. It turns out, Rupert could really use a friend like Levi.

This sweet and moving friendship story shares an important message of acceptance for every reader—whether they're a Rupert or a Levi.

A story of the quintessential odd couple. Where a cultured, impeccably dressed rhino, complete with a bow tie and sweater, is confronted with a persistent, rude, bedraggled tickbird. Even though, predictably they become friends, the ending is satisfying. Hannah's illustrations are loaded with treasures and humor and I love the rich vocabulary she uses throughout the book. Subtly placed within the greater message of friendship and acceptance of others lies the scientific nugget of the symbiotic relationship between rhinos and tickbirds. Tucked into the end pages, there are two definitions of "sym-bi-o-sis," which track the development of Rupert & Levi's friendship. Overall this is a great book about starting friendships, especially some unlikely ones, with a bit of science and language arts (vocabulary and dictionary usage) thrown in.

Rupert and Levi are my new favorite friend pairing. I hope we see more of them! As someone who always sees themselves as the embarrassing friend, I'm glad there's a book I can give to all of MY friends to show them how much I appreciate them. Harrison's playful use of language, paired with her awesome illustrations (the dodgeball scene is hilarious!), make this book laugh-out-loud funny. But don't let that fool you, it will also hit you right in the feels.
