There was only one way for Chester to do things - his own way. Wilson did things the same way; they were best friends. From double-knotting their shoes to cutting their sandwiches diagonally, Chester and Wilson were two of a kind.
"They really are two peas in a pod," said Chester's mother.
"Looks like it," said Chester's father.
From morning to night - and in every way - they were inseparable. But then they met Lilly ... and extraordinary things happened to their friendship.

Chester and his best friend, Wilson, have their own ways of doing things, whether it be using bike hand signals, swallowing watermelon seeds, or dressing as a combo for Halloween. "Peas in a pod," note their parents. Look out, Wilson and Chester! There's a new neighbor, and Lily has her own way of doing things. Working out the intricacies of becoming a threesome captures the vagaries and resiliencies of young friendship. Laura Hamilton is an unobtrusive narrator who puts the listener's total focus on the story. She narrates at a pace to encourage thinking about her words and appreciating Henkes's detailed illustrations. Discreet sound effects add just the right background to the story.
