Opposites attract and become fast friends in this quirky, funny picture book.
Wooby lives in a nice, quiet neighborhood where everyone minds his own business. And he likes it that way. Then noisy, energetic Peep moves next door with her banging and smashing and crashing. She even gives a “wild” PARTY! At first, shy Wooby is beside himself—until he realizes that he and Peep have more in common than he ever imagined. Hilarious comic-book panels throughout add fun and joy to this unique story.

Wooby & Peep: A Story of Unlikely Friendship based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Why kids will love it - Reading about Peep's antics will bring many laughs. And seeing the friendship bloom between Wooby and Peep will show kids how much fun it can be to be friends with others, even those who might be a little different than you. What I learned as a writer - Having fun, original characters is so important in picture books. And giving them names that are unique, but match with the other characters is also important. I loved the dialogue between the characters, which shows that for some pb's plenty of dialogue does work.
This is an adorable book with a sweet message about friendship! It's fun to read and a lot to see visually, so each time you read it you will notice different things. My kids love it!
