Friendly Day by Mij Kelly
Hooray - it's Friendly Day! A day for sharing, a day for caring, when everyone is nice, when Cow reads Snail a fairy tale and cats do NOT eat mice.
Illustrated by the one and only Charles Fuge whose Little Wombat series has sold over 1 million copies, Friendly Day is a wonderful rhyming story full of friendship, love and hugs!
When a little mouse is cornered by a hungry cat, he manages to persuade her that today is Friendly Day - a day when everyone shares and is kind. So, Cat lets Mouse go and finds Dog to give him a hug! But when the trio come across a big bear, he is not so easily persuaded...
Children will laugh out loud at this amusing story of a clever mouse who tricks a hungry cat into sparing his life by telling the cat that it's Friendly day... the one day in the year when all animals must share, care, and be nice to one another.
