Wooby and Peep: A Story of Unlikely Friendship
by Cynthea Liu, illustrated by Mary Peterson
Grades 3-7 40 pages Sterling February 2013 Hardcover    

Two very different characters find friendship in this whimsical picture book.

Wooby lives on a quiet little street where the neighbors keep to themselves and mind their own business. When boisterous Peep moves in next door, he invites everyone to a housewarming partyóbut aside from Wooby, nobody comes.

Peep tries harder to make friends and fit in, maybe a little too hard. Wooby becomes annoyed with Peepís overbearing ways until he discovers how much the two of them have in common.

Illustrations in soft pink, blue and orange hues lend to the feelings of affection Wooby and Peep develop for each other. Liuís clever dialogue adds appeal to this humorous story about accepting anotherís differences and finding something to connect with them about.
