Recalibrating! Best Friends In The Universe by Stephanie Watson

Louie and Hector have a lot in common. They are such good friends they just have to write a book about their friendship.

"Wanna know why we're best friends? "says Louie.

"We both love pythons!" says Hector.

"Our moms got us both fish. We both named our fish Python, says Louie.

They both love knock-knock jokes and dancing to loud music. They both love inventing new foods.
"Here's a peanut butter toast milkshake!" says Louie.

They are such good friends that they decide they need to change the title of their book....

BEST FRIENDS IN THE UNIVERSE FOREVER AND EVER!
"We keep each other's secrets," brags Louie.

"Like how one time Louie wet his pants after too much peanut butter toast milkshake!" says Hector.

"You just told everyone my secret!" says Louie. Ooopsie!

SO... Louie smirks, as he raises his voice. "Hector likes Linda Berger!"

Maybe it's time to retitle their book again!

WORST FRIENDS IN THE UNIVERSE?

Is this the end of the friendship of Louie and Hector? Or will they find that their goldfish are just not up to being best friends? After all, fish don't dance and their sense of humor is totally lacking!

After all, maybe their kind of loose-lipped friendship is worth a do-over, in Stephanie Watson's humorous story of best friends forever in spite of themselves, Best Friends in the Universe (Scholastic Books). With the hilarious and ebullient faux naif crayon drawings of noted picture book artist Le Uyen Pham, this is one funny and fun friendship that kids will love and perhaps from which they may learn a bit about being good friends.
