A tale of best friends, one a human child and one a very anthropomorphized boar named Buddy. The strong, expressive gouache paintings with an unusual palette of blue, brown and orange have a hip, contemporary look. Visually appealing and wryly amusing.

—Kirkus Reviews


I've known Buddy since the first day of kindergarten. I think he's so annoying when he can't keep up, when he is too fast, and when he talks or not. It's just that I sometimes forget to be annoyed. However having someone around to keep you company and annoy you is a wonderful thing.
