Meet Pearl, a hardworking rabbit, and Wagner, a daydreaming mouse. At school they build a robot together, impress a judge at the science fair, and tell each other the truth at all times. But friendship isn't always easy. Sometimes a robot doesn't turn out quite the way it's supposed to, and sometimes a pair of new green boots can cause a fight. Through it all, Pearl and Wagner show that they know how to make up and stay good friends no matter what.

Kate McMullan's warm, funny text and R. W. Alley's delightful illustrations perfectly capture the ups and downs of childhood friendship. Readers will be eager to know what's next for these charming new characters.
