Step aside, Bert and Ernie, the new odd couple is here!
Pug and Doug are best friends. They both love doughnuts, bird watching, and polka music. They are also very different. Doug has a big imagination. Pug…not so much. When a misunderstanding between the friends hurts Doug’s feelings, Pug must find a way to set things right.
This charming and hilarious odd-couple friendship story is perfect for best buddies who usually, but don’t always, see eye-to-eye.
A misunderstanding pushes a canine friendship to the brink in this quietly humorous story from Breen (The Secret of Santa's Island). Best pals Pug and Doug know well each other's strengths and shortcomings ("Doug was artistic. Pug not so much," writes Breen, showing Doug sculpting a passable version of Rodin's The Thinker out of snow, while Pug's snowman is a misshapen mutant). Lovers of polka music and bird-watching, they have always successfully navigated any bumps in their relationship, but when Doug finds a shared memento in Pug's trashcan and spies a diary entry that reads, "I'm really sick of old Doug," he's thrown for a loop. Doug leaves Pug an "I'm sorry we can't be friends anymore" note, and while Pug is initially baffled, he quickly figures out what happened and goes full bore trying to set things right. Breen juggles a variety of engaging perspectives throughout his mixed-media compositions, including occasional comic strip style panel sequences. Readers will recognize the ebb and flow of friendship and the importance of clear communication especially when it comes to half-finished diary entries about old doughnuts. Ages 3 5.
