Do you ever feel just so-so and like you might actually sink quite low? When you feel that way, what do you do? Does your mom, dad, friends or pet make you feel less blue?

Snoozie is a cat, who doesn't like moving. Sunny is a dog, who's afraid of the rain. They're very different, but they are the best of friends. One day, while out on their morning walk, they come upon a small, timid dog who has been feeling "so-so" for quite some time. How will this chance encounter change all their lives? Snoozie, Sunny, and So-So written by Dafna Ben-zvi, illustrated by Ofra Amit, and translated from Hebrew by Annette Appel, is a sweet and insightful story about friendship and the trust, hopefulness, and energy that it gives us all
