A new tale of friendship from Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Once there were two friends who were always together... But one day, the boy was all alone. His friend was gone.
The hero of this delightful new story from Eric Carle makes up his mind to find his friend. Undaunted, he sets off on a quest that takes him across a swift cold river, over a tall mountain, through a broad meadow and a forest full of dark shadows. He sleeps under starry skies and dreams of floating on clouds before finally being reunited with his beloved friend.

This wonderfully whimsical tale is a celebration of the value of friendship and the power of a child's imagination, captured in the simple prose and magnificent colourful artwork fans of Eric Carle's work know and love so well.
Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children. He was born in New York, but spent his early life in Germany. He returned to the States in his early twenties and worked as a graphic designer and an art director before he began creating children's books. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara. The Carles opened The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002. (Visit carlemuseum.org)
