Synopsis

When Daisy comes down with chicken pox, Peter proves he’s a friend she can count on: On Monday, he makes her a get-well card–and his stuffed elephant comes to life to deliver it. On Tuesday, he sends two zebras with flowers. By the time five monkeys arrive with balloons on Friday, Daisy is feeling much better. So on Saturday, she delivers a gift of her own–an invitation to come over and play. With very few words, this story speaks volumes about the magic of having a very best friend.
