A great story about friendship with everyone, even those who do not look like yourself. Firefly and Cricket were brave and became best friends with two unlikely creatures. ( )

I thought this was a great book to read, the more and more I kept reading it. The plot was very well done introducing two characters with larger than life dreams and a miniature giant who needs some friends. The dialogue used in the text was very helpful in recognizing who was saying what because many different characters get introduced. I really believe this is a great book for young readers with a large imagination. This would easily cater to them. Overall, the main message of the book is dream big, no matter how improbable the odds are. ( )

A sweet story with gorgeous illustrations, perfect for a read-aloud to elementary-aged children. Cricket, Firefly, Vole and Peter are well-rounded characters, all with problems to overcome, aided by strong friendships. ( )
