Meesha Makes Friends
by Tom Percival
Meesha loves making things. Lots and lots of things. But the thing she finds very hard to make is friends. She stumbles for the right words, she can't find the best way to join in. She can, however, make cut out chums with glue and buttons and string and Choco Crunch and Moo's Milk boxes. And, it turns out it is her making things which helps her make a new friend! A really original approach to children's friendship in its recognition that some children really struggle to develop the skills needed to reach out to others. Percivals's trademark reduced palette. Here, monochrome shot through with red, blue and pink. South Asian protagonist. Age 4-7, Paperback 28pp
