Will You Be My Friend?

By Russell Ayto
Illustrated by Russell Ayto

Russell Ayto's trademark humour delivers a twist in this tale with maximum cute-factor, as a lonely bushbaby tries to find somebody to be her friend.

Bush Baby is so lonely – nobody wants to be her friend. Giraffe thinks she’s too small. She’s not pink enough for Flamingo. They just can’t they see past how she looks. Lion, however, thinks she is just right to be his friend. And he’d never be so rude as to eat a friend. Is Bush Baby very brave, very foolish, or just very, very lonely?

  • Sometimes it’s hard to make friends, even if you’re a really cute bushbaby... Open your heart and your mind, and get ready to laugh out loud!
  • Sparkling with humour, Russell Ayto’s comic genius shines right through to the surprise ending.
  • Russell has won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the Booktrust Early Years Award and the Nestle Children’s Book Prize Gold Award, and has twice been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
