Beth Ferry has never met an invisible whale - at least she doesn't think she has. She lives near the beach in New Jersey where she has met many a crab and snail, some super smart seagulls and more barnacles than she can count. Beth and her family love nothing more than walking along the seashore, looking for interesting and wondrous things. In addition to writing books about the beach, Beth enjoys writing about friendship, nice dreams and scarecrows. You can learn more at bethferry.com.

"These two characters are a delight to know...and the irresistible cadence of the text should make this a repeat favorite." --Booklist * "This warm and tender story of two BFFs is made even more enjoyable by the charming, textured tan and blue illustrations . . . the text, suitable for beginning readers, sweetly expresses what it is to be and to have a good friend." --School Library Journal, starred review "Ferry adds zip to the best-friends-forever theme with plenty of sly puns...and Lichtenheld conveys significant expressiveness through the characters' dot eyes and small smiles...The use of instantly recognizable objects as characters gives the story universal appeal, and Ferry makes its moral unmissable." --Publishers Weekly "A light, enjoyable approach to a recognizable narrative about making--and helping--friends." --Kirkus "Preschoolers looking for a model of good friendship need look no further. Kindness rules the day, and humor, rather than obvious lesson-teaching, moves the story along." --Horn Book Magazine --
