Berenicka Kolomycka is an award-winning Polish artist and did all of the watercolor art for this picture book. The colors are vivid, and not what you usually think of when you hear of watercolors. It's not pastels, it's strong blues and reds and purples, bringing Tiny Fox and Great Boar to life. We also have boxes and bubbles of text in comic book style so you know what Tiny Fox thinks and says. He learns to share his space, misses Great Boar when he goes wandering, and copes with the winter cold. The two at times literally have different ideas on what to do, but ultimately decide that working together is best, and really want each others' company.

This is an adorable book and is listed as volume 1 of a series. I find it deceptively simple, but still a powerful message for young children. Life is difficult alone, and much easier to share with others. Friends can push us in all kinds of directions, some scary and some wonderful. Supportive friends will always bring us to fun places and help us become our better selves.
