Sometimes It's Nice to Be Alone
Author: Amy Hest
Illustrator: Philip Stead
Sometimes it’s nice to be alone.
Just you, eating a cookie, alone.
But what if a friend drops in?
In Amy Hest and Philip C. Stead’s accomplished hands, anyone can become a potential friend—and that includes horses, whales, crocodiles, and even dinosaurs. The book’s effortless lilt and joyous illustrations are reminiscent of the very best work of Margaret Wise Brown and Charlotte Zolotow. It’s a complete treat for any lonely kid with a big imagination.
