My Friends

By Max Low
Illustrated by Max Low

A playful and thoughtful exploration of friendship, in words and pictures, for younger children

I’ve made some friends. Would you like to meet them?” Mossy is a quiet friend, Archibald is a lion friend, Ezza watches clouds, Pepper cooks yummy food, Olga listens to music, Herman knits and Lina invents things, while Bert looks after worms and snails. And Klaus is an imaginary friend! They are all good friends but sometimes it’s also nice to just be on your own. Written in the first person, this is a playful and thoughtful exploration of friendship, in words and pictures, for younger children. This is a perfect story for sharing – with stunning collage illustrations by an exciting emerging illustrator.

  • Encourages interaction and discussion about all kinds of friends
  • Simple words and bright colours combine in an exciting and effective way
  • Charming and humorous exploration of friendship
