Plus One

Agnes is new to town and wants to make friends, so she invites some girls in her class to a fancy tea party. When there is a knock at the door, she expects to see them — not Dave from next door. This isn't what she had in mind at all... So she says, "The invitation says plus one. This means you need to bring a friend. And since you don't have a friend with you — goodbye."

Agnes is sure that will be the end of that, but Dave is persistent, and before long he's bringing one friend after another: Pierre of the North, Esquire, a goose who Agnes deems too loud; Fred, a cactus that's too prickly; Dr. Scalywiggles, a legless lizard she mistakes for a snake; even his mom, who makes great French toast and lets him win at tag. Alas, no grownups are allowed at this tea party.

But as the minutes pass waiting for her other guests, Agnes is left with nothing but her tea set, watching Dave and his friends play tag. He may not have been the guest she was expecting, but maybe they can still be friends... In this fun and funny tale, John Hare, author and illustrator of Field Trip to the Moon, uses his signature wit and buoyant illustrations to share the timeless message that sometimes new friends turn out to be someone unexpected.

Description

"Readers may sense that Dave is something of a social outlier — digitally finished slice-of-life acrylic paintings show the pale-skinned child standing solo outside the kids’ school and snagging an invite that falls to the sidewalk.... Hare (Field Trip to the Moon) proffers this tale of inclusion with a light touch, gently underscoring the message that it’s good to be open to new friends." — Publishers Weekly
