  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 1

A laugh-out-loud book about an inventive, proactive little girl who decides she needs a new friend.

When Suzy’s family moves, she finds that everybody is too busy to play with her. So, taking matters into her own hands, she puts up a “FRIEND WANTED” poster. When a big bear turns up and ticks all her boxes (likes cookies, coloring, and dress-up), he seems perfect—except for one thing, he won’t wear shoes! But does this matter to Suzy, who absolutely loves shoes?

This is an adorable, heartwarming story about an unusual friendship. The book teaches children to understand and appreciate each other’s differences and that best friends don’t always need to like the same things.

Sharon Davey’s funny, quirky illustrations complement her words, making this a must-have picture book.
