Description

Two artistic friends, paintbrushes in hand ...
?I wish I were just like you,? says the rabbit to the pig.
?I wish I were just like you,? says the pig to the rabbit.
As the friends use paintbrushes and a few props to adjust tails, ears and noses, something soon becomes clear: they liked each other better before. ?I am me and you are you ... that's why we love each other, me and you!?

This gentle celebration of friendship and individuality by award-winning writer and illustrator Geneviève Côté will reassure young readers that they are loved and special as themselves. It's a book with all-ages appeal and an ideal gift for a child --- or a best friend.
