Little Hare Books, 2011. ISBN 9781921541735.
Picture book. Dolly the pig and Jack the rabbit are best of friends. They do everything together, playing in the playground, listening to music together, climbing trees, exercising and just laughing. But one day when painting together, they decide to draw each other, and neither likes the other's portrayal. They argue, and leave each other. But each on their own place gets mad, then realises that without their friend they are lonely and sad.
They each return to the tree they climbed and tell each other how much they missed them, and so resolve their differences and become friends once again.
A charming story of resolution and friendship, this book is a great read a loud, and be most useful in the classroom when discussing friendship and how to resolve differences.
