Acclaimed illustrator Eva Eriksson lends her talent to this picture book. Tim is nervous about moving, but his cuddly friend Pico is even more nervous. What if it’s too hot? What if there are too many stairs? And worst of all...what if Tim makes new friends and doesn’t need Pico anymore? When moving day comes, Pico is pleasantly surprised to find that Tim does make a new friend, but that Tim’s new friend has a cuddly friend, too and that all four can be friends. Most of all, Pico is thrilled when Tim reminds him: “You are my best friend for ever and ever.”

Anke Wagner was born in Mülheim, Germany. She finds joy in writing children’s books. She gets her ideas while working in the garden. Her most important critics are her two grown-up daughters.From Booklist:
Tim’s parents reassure him that moving will be exciting. He, in turn, attempts to reassure his stuffed animal, Pico, who grows increasingly distraught as each supposed enticement backfires. The final one, new friends, worries him most. What if Tim prefers them to Pico? After the move, Tim takes Pico to kindergarten, where they play with classmate Hannah and her cuddle buddy, Emma, and Pico realizes that he has made a new friend of his own. Even better, Tim calls him my best friend for ever and ever. Wagner’s simple story reflects a subtle understanding of the wrenching anxiety moving can bring as well as what reassures children most. Brightened with overlapping strokes of soft colors, Eriksson’s expressive ink drawings illustrate the text with sensitivity and vitality. All the more reassuring because it acknowledges children’s worries, this is a fine picture book for any child awaiting a move, remembering one, or imagining what it might be like. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan
