This is an elegantly told, truly unique tale by author Jim Averbeck and illustrator Amy Hevron, of a canary who befriends a lemon and finds that you don’t have to be two of a kind to form a meaningful and lasting friendship. From Roaring Brook Press, 2018.

"Averbeck offers a lovely ode to friendship that gets even better with repeat readings. The deceptively simplistic acrylic illustrations on wood offer an endearing counterpoint to the charming story.—School Library Journal, starred review
