Description


Yelfred and Omek have been best frints since they were little blobbies. They play and snack, and sometimes they even fight, all in a language similar to but slightly different from, English. When Omek decides to borrow Yelfred's new spaceship without asking (and then crashes it), it sparks the biggest fight yet. Can these two best frints make up and move on?

Award-winning picture book creator Antoinette Portis delivers a new universe of cleverness and imagination in this hilarious, sweet, and otherworldly book about friendship.

Praise For…


"Those seeking materials on friendship, especially for storytimes, should add this wonderfully wacky take on the subject."—School Library Journal, starred

"Her dot-matrix layers of retro color add dimension to the simple shapes and close-up images, and her flamboyant misspellings and soundalike words let beginning readers in on the sly jokes while crafting an all-too-knowing portrait of what frintship often looks like."—Publishers Weekly, starred

"Portis' bright, odd landscapes, flora and fauna digitally colored in vibrant hues, and her two grinning friends are all sweetly demented and irresistible."—Kirkus, starred

"
Her digitally colored mixed-media illustrations feature simple shapes—lots of
circles and triangles—vivid hues, thick black lines, and pop art–like textures."—Horn Book, starred
