I liked the stories in this book. Great friend tales. My issue with this book is that it's a little deceptive. It's a picture-chapter book. There is more than one story here. It's not something you can pull off the shelf and quickly read with your kid.

The stories, inside the book, are short which is great for children who perfer short and funny tales.

Happily for this reader, Tao Nyeu's water-based silkscreens in orange, aqua, green, and yellow owe a lot to Richard Scarry. There are asides, visual jokes, and more than anything an overwhelming sense of joy and connection in these 4 short stories. As the back of the book says, "Life is full of fun when you share it with a friend." Check out some of the art here: http://www.taonyeu.com/v2/projects/squid-octopus-friends-for-always/.

Great for independent picture book readers or sharing one-on-one (too long for storytime). Sweetly absurd and perfectly illustrated stories are reminiscent of George and Martha or Frog and Toad. The background has amusing details and side commentary without being cluttered. Nyeu has created an original and immersive undersea world for these two friends.
