I met the author and illustrator of this book, he was as delightful as his story. Frieda is a very timid bug, prone to see danger in every shadow, Gloria is not. This is the story of their walk together, which is funny and telling as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080278934X, Paperback)

Two friends will win your heart as their adventure amazes your eyes.

Gloria is brave, but Frieda is absolutely not. Gloria wants to go for a walk but Frieda absolutely does not. Everything is scary from Frieda's point of view-the river looks suspiciously like a snake, and is that a moldy old log over there, or a ferocious dog? When Frieda cries wolf one too many times, Gloria stops listening to her. But what's that in the bushes? Are the two little friends in danger, or is it another figment of Frieda's imagination?

Matthew McElligott's visual illusions will have you just as amazed as Frieda is about what's absolutely real and what's absolutely not. And Gloria and Frieda's friendship will win your hearts.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:11:05 -0400)

Gloria, an ant, takes her friend Frieda for a walk and tries to convince her not to always view the world as a frightening place.
