Simon and Molly were the best of friends, just the two of them. Until Hester moved in. Hester doesn’t want to ride the two-wheeler, like they always do; she wants to make paper airplanes instead. And the toast Simon makes for her is too boring; she wants to add cinnamon sugar. Molly happily goes along with all of her changes, but Simon liked things the way they were before Hester moved in. With Hester around, will Molly still want to be his friend?
Lisa Jahn-Clough once again captures the complexities of friendship. She deftly explores the children’s feelings of insecurity and exclusion, revealing both the hidden motives behind their actions and the keys to their reconciliation. Readers will discover that with a little understanding and compromise, while two is definitely better than one, three can be even more fun!
