Description

Written and illustrated by Chloe Jasmine. Published by Walker Books.

This is an every-kid story about managing shyness and being the best kind of friend you can be.
Henry Turnip has seven pairs of blue striped overalls, one for each day of the week. He likes television shows about the deep blue sea, strawberry jam sandwiches with the crusts cut off and reading indoors. Henry does not like too much of anything–too much noise, too many people or too much mess. Until he meets Reuben Moon. Reuben is an adventurer and the kind of friend who helps Henry feel a little braver and more confident. This is a story about finding a friend who likes you just the way you are but inspires you to try new things, too.
