Another gem from Amy Schwartz just as "charming and hilariously understated*" as ever. (*New York Times)

Five fast and funny chapters of the lives of two rather unusual friends: Tiny, an elephant with a fear of ice skating and a newfound love of knitting, and Hercules, a mouse with a heart of gold and a desire to learn to paint. As different as can be, somehow together they make the perfect team. Young readers setting out on their own with books will cheer for this funny and touching duo.

About the Author:

AMY SCHWARTZ is the author-illustrator of many distinguished books for children which have received rave reviews as well as a New York Time Best Illustrated citation. She lives with her husband and son in Brooklyn, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K—A droll, upbeat tale with cheery watercolor-and-ink illustrations. The story contains five vignettes about a mouse and an elephant, and the first giggle is right there in the title, since Tiny is the elephant and Hercules is the mouse. Each scenario requires some thought and ingenuity. Tiny is invited to an ice-skating party but doesn't know how to skate. Hercules needs to paint something LARGE for his art class. Rude customers shake Tiny's composure when the friends open a lemonade stand. Hercules's 103-year-old uncle can't blow out all the candles on his birthday cake. When Tiny and Hercules decide to knit each other sweaters, Tiny finishes his mouse-sized sweater long before Hercules can make inroads on an elephant-sized one. The tales are peppered with exclamations like, "Great idea!," "Don't worry," and "I think I can help you." In fact, even the most sidesplitting moments in these stories (as when Hercules holds Tiny aloft on the skating rink and does the skating for them both) are secondary to the touching portrait of a devoted friendship.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
