“These simple stories are simultaneously cosy and reassuring while celebrating the growing independence of the young. Perfect for one to three year olds.” – Readings

‘Short, clear sentences infused with a childlike sensibility highlight their decisions and show the merits of generosity as well as how a compromise can be reached… Just the ticket for children who are developing social skills and learning what it is to be a friend.” – Kirkus

“We’ve been huge Pip and Posy fans for what feels like a lifetime… so it was a big day indeed when a NEW book came out! The New Friend is everything you’d expect from Scheffler and we all love it. I’d say it’s gone in above The Little Puddle and The Scary Monster but below The Snowy Day and The Bedtime Frog (which, for the record nothing will ever beat).”  2 Boys 1 Mum
