Critically lauded bestselling artist Charles Fuge (My Dad; Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball; I Know a Rhino; Found You Little Wombat!; It's a Monster Party) returns with a new, beautifully illustrated picture book on a subject that every child can relate to: how it feels to have a good friend move away.Almost every child knows what it's like to move or to have a friend move away. With his dazzling undersea pictures in vibrant colors and a text full of heart and wit, Charles Fuge captures that sad feeling perfectly--and offers plenty of comfort, too. Ever since Gilbert the Great White Shark was a tiny pup, Raymond the Remora stuck to him like glue. Them, one day, Gilbert wakes to find his friend has left town to live somewhere new. "It's my fault," the little shark wails. "Last week I called him a sucker!" Nothing can console Gilbert: not his mother, not the funny clownfish, not his kind friends at school. Then he meets Rita, a disconsolate remora who has lost her shark. "I'd love to stick around with you," she smiles, as sunlight dances in her eyes. And that is the start of a beautiful new friendship.It's another Charles Fuge winner.Praise for Charles Fuge's Picture Books:I Know a Rhino:"[A] vivid rhyming picture book.
