That's What Friends Are For

Meet Tugg and Teeny. Best friends since... well, forever! Tugg, a gorilla, and Teeny, a monkey, live together in their jungle neighborhood, Sidekick Thicket. As opposite as night and day, the two friends work and play together, each helping the other face life's challenges. That's What Friends Are For is a trio of stories that has Teeny helping hippo Margie Barge learn self-acceptance, finding a substitute horn for Rocko Rhino, and hosting a neighborhood picnic. All with the help of her best friend, Tugg. Engagingly written by Children's Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis, this beginning reader series is charmingly brought to life by Redwall artist Christopher Denise.
