Follow the heartwarming story of a new friendship in this innovative title, comprised of two books telling two different perspectives of the story of Joe and Mae!

Its Joe's first day at a new school. Its big, scary and different. He misses his school, his old friends and his old life. Cant he just go back to the way things were? When Mae hears that there's a new kid starting school, she can't wait to meet him. Is this her chance to make a true friend?

A New Friend is the next book in the One Book, Two Stories format. With this innovative format, two books, telling two different stories, are bound together. One book follows Joe on his first day at school, and the other shows Mae on her quest to make friends with the new kid. The stories can also be read side-by-side, as spreads from each book complement each other and are linked with corresponding page numbers. The final spread at the back of the book reveals a shared ending, in which Joe and Mae are united in the playground!

This uplifting tale of overcoming fears and making new friends is the perfect gift for anyone struggling with new challenges, and the innovative format means kids can read the story again and again, each time in different ways!
