Title: Friends

Author: Mies Van Hout

KDL Description:


Little monsters become friends, laughing and playing, but also teasing, arguing and making up in this book about relationships.

Amazon Description: Happy was an international hit that showed off Mies van Hout’s uncanny ability to convey feelings with her vibrant illustrations.

With Friends she goes one step further and shows emotional interactions. Just as she made the fish of Happy uniquely hers, here she uses monsters to show different situations—they cuddle, laugh, play, but they also fight, tease and more—making the images recognizable for little monsters of all ages.
