Oscar the rabbit discovers that friends -- in whatever form they come -- are full of nice surprises.
Oscar just moved to a new house with his mother.
He was looking forward to making lots of friends.
"I hope they like to swim," Oscar said to his mother.
"Because that's what I like doing best."
Oscar headed down the path.
When Oscar moves to a new part of the woods, he wants nothing more than to make some friends and go swimming. Much to his dismay, all the potential friends have their own interests. And there's no one just like Oscar: one is too noisy, one is too wild, one is too smart, one is too bashful. But after returning home alone and disappointed, Oscar realizes that the best friendships require a little give and take.
This playful picture book explores the meaning of friendship with subtlety and charm.
