We Are Going to Be Pals!

Illustrated by Mark Teague

About The Book

An egret and a rhinoceros navigate the ups and downs of their symbiotic relationship—which is more like a friendship!—in this warm and witty book from bestselling author-illustrator Mark Teague.

In a not-so-simple symbiotic friendship between two pals, Egret does his best to teach Rhino about how to be a friend. Friends eat together, have fun together, and help each other out, right? But they also respect boundaries, recognize their differences, and compromise (sometimes).

When Egret ends up in a sticky situation, it’s Rhino to the rescue as this unlikely pair realizes that communication and kindness are the key to any friendship.
