Summary
Lonely and bored at the castle, the Little Princess eagerly looks forward to making friends on her first day of school. After Molly, Polly, Agnes, and Willy refuse to play with her, though, she approaches all the other solitary children on the playground. They play together, share their treats, and commiserate, soft-pedaling their friendless state: “It<U+2019>s not so bad.” When the school day ends, the Little Princess realizes that all her classmates, even the initially rude ones, have become her friends. The light-handed text draws no conclusions, but the expressive, colorful line-and-wash illustrations show that the many children who think of themselves as having no friends are soon acting more cooperatively and having more fun than their classmates. The disparity between the repeated phrase “the children with no friends” and their depiction as an increasingly happy, cohesive group could open up an interesting discussion in the home or the classroom. A simple, satisfying picture book on a timeless topic: making friends. -- Phelan, Carolyn (Reviewed 1/1/2017) (Booklist, vol 113, number 9, p100)
