Opposites attract and become fast friends in this quirky picture book.
Wooby lives in a nice, quiet neighborhood--until noisy, party-loving Peep moves in. At first, shy Wooby doesn't know what to do. But before long he realizes that he and Peep have more in common than he ever imagined. Hilarious comic-book panels throughout add fun and joy to this unique story.
