Louise and Sara are best friends. They laugh together, read together, and play together. And they always avoid Barry, the boy who lives across the street. In three easy-to-read seasonal stories, newcomer Onur Tukel develops the unlikely friendship among these three characters. As they play by their favorite tree, they fight over a tire swing, throw snowballs, and figure out what to do when a storm blows down their tree. But no matter what problems arise around and between them, they end up having fun together. Onur Tukel, whose career started in animation, has enlivened the text with mixed-media illustrations on every page, some small, some big. This is a perfect picture book in an early-chapter-book format.

The three children are easy to tell apart—Sara sports a tan face and red pigtails, Louisa is brown-skinned with a bouncy black hairdo and Barry’s gray tint and wide, tooth-sprinkled mouth will amuse all readers.

Louisa and Sara are BFFs, but their odd neighbor Barry, a boy with a ghostly white face who “rarely talked to anyone,” also intrigues them.
