Description


From Caldecott and Newbery Honoree Tomie dePaola and Emmy Award–winning writer for the Muppets Jim Lewis comes the second book in an easy-to-read picture book series about friendship.

Andy is small. Sandy is tall. Andy is quiet. Sandy is LOUD. Andy and Sandy may be opposites, but they’re best friends. And when they get together to play dress up, anything can happen. Written in simple words and short, declarative sentences, this book is perfect for little ones just learning to read on their own.
