What’s waiting for Barry at the end of the walk?
What’s waiting for Barry at the end of the walk? The ridiculous hat his friend Polarhog forces on him? No, that’s only a distraction from the real surprise! Kids will crack up over this funny friendship and be all the more moved by the book’s genuinely poignant ending. From the talented mind of Eisner-nominated cartoonist Renée French, this Level 1 book will be a treat for the youngest beginning readers, to be read aloud with a grown-up or all on their own!
