When Maude moves to a new town, everything feels… okay. Things would feel just right if only she had a friend. So, Maude draws a blue puppy and names him Scribbly. He plays catch, takes naps, but most importantly, Scribbly teaches Maude the importance of staying true to herself and gives her the courage to meet new friends — both human and four-legged.
This heartfelt picture book from Ged Adamson, the creator of Ava and the Rainbow (Who Stayed) is a charming reminder that imaginary friends are real friends! Adamson's warm watercolor and pencil illustrations help capture Maude's nervousness about settling in to a new community, and even as just a scribble, Scribbly is full of character. With its encouraging message and authentic look at a child's emotions about moving, this delightful book is a testament to the resilience of kids.
"Mom thinks Maude is too old for an imaginary dog, but Scribbly is the best friend Maude needs.... Readers will feel all the emotions associated with trying to make new friends and learn that letting people see how unique and special you are is as rewarding as it is scary." — Kirkus Reviews
