Review by Lorie Pierce

Have you ever had an argument with a friend over silly little things? Meet Tiger and Badger, best friends one minute and enemies the next. In this picture book, author Emily Jenkins takes readers on the up-and-down journey of being a friend, even when you just want things to go your way.

Illustrator Marie-Louise Gay provides a joyous backdrop to this tussle of wills. Readers will want to linger on each page to spot the whimsical extras. The story is set in a blustery outdoor scene with kites in the wind, polka-dotted butterflies and clothes flapping on the line. Calm returns as differences are resolved. Hugs are exchanged and a sense of sharing prevails.

Emily Jenkins is a prodigious author of children’s books, including Toys Meet Snow, and books for young adults, including The Boyfriend List.

Originally from Québec City and now a resident of Montréal, award-winning illustrator Mary-Louise Gay has been involved in the creation of more than 60 children’s books. Educated at the Institut des arts graphiques in Montréal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School, she also studied illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
