One Cool Friend by Toni Buzzeo

Looking for a little lighthearted funness to read? I know funness is not a word, but read this book and you will see why I laid into that new word. Father/son, stuffed animal/real, twisted truths/honest relationships all show up in this clever story. Multigenre in nature--love that, Tom Romano--and with David Small's brilliant illustrations, kids will swallow this one hook, line, and sinker.

As I read this book again, I can almost see my mother in place of the father (although she is not near as self-absorbed) and me in place of the boy (although I am nowhere near as well-dressed), us finding our ways further into what interests us and then: collision!

Happy Reading! One Cool Friend. Pure funness.
