I like this series, but not as much as I like Frog&Toad or Henry&Mudge. The topics covered have been covered elsewhere, and the illustrations aren't especially evocative. But this is another good entry about how to deal with disappointment. ( )

This story is about the friendship between Iris and Walter and how they get to perform in a play at school. Iris struggles with making her costume (but learns her lines well) and Walter struggles with learning his lines (but is great with designing his costume). They both help each other with their struggles so they’re successful. Although Iris gets sick and is extremely upset when she is not able to perform, Walter’s thank-you note cheers her up, as well as the special treat from their teacher.
