That's What Friends Are For
With a sly wink, Florence Parry Heide and Sylvia Van Clief offer a valuable lesson about true friendship, brought to life in vivid collage by Holly Meade. "If I had a bad leg," says the crab, "I would get rid of it and grow another one." "Its nice of you to give advice," says Theodore. Theodore the elephant has hurt his leg and cant meet his cousin at the end of the forest. What a pity! Of course, all the other animals are more than willing to give him advice. After all, thats what friends are for - isnt it? Florence Parry Heides unmistakable dry wit rings through this clever cumulative tale of a long-suffering elephant, his well-meaning friends, and a straight-shooting opossum who reminds them all what being a real friend means.
