Description

A sweet and clever friendship story in rhyme, about looking past physical differences to appreciate the person (or dragon) underneath. George and Blaise are pen pals, and they write letters to each other about everything: their pets, birthdays, favorite sports, and science fair projects. There's just one thing that the two friends don't know: George is a human, while Blaise is a dragon! What will happen when these pen pals finally meet face-to-face? "When I was a kid, my best friend was Josh Funk. Now he's becoming a friend to a whole new generation."--B.J. Novak, author of The New York Times bestseller The Book With No Picturesshow more

Review quote

"When I was a kid, my best friend was Josh Funk. Now he's becoming a friend to a whole new generation."--B.J. Novak, author of The New York Times bestseller The Book With No Pictures * "Montalvo's visual irony skillfully paces alongside Funk's gamboling rhymes, rendering readers' investigation of each spread just as rewarding as the page turns. A playful celebration of difference (and poetry)."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Perfect for classes undertaking a pen-pal unit, but general picture book collections can benefit from this gentle reminder that kids who look different can still get along."--School Library Journalshow more
