If you enjoyed reading Best Frints in the Whole Universe by Antoinette Portis, you are certain to enjoy reading Best Frints at Skrool.

Once again, award-winning author/illustrator, Antoinette Portis has created a hilarious book, using the same characters and creative wordplay from her first book. This time the best “frints” are off to “skrool.” Omek and Yelfred have the same rules at school as on Earth. Listen to the teacher. Keep your hands to yourself. Make new friends. Share. But when Yelfred meets Q-B, he forgets to share with his friend, Omek. At lunch, when other friends are sharing their food, Omek decides to help Yelfred and Q-B share back which leads to a “spewd flight.” Oh, oh! Now they have to spend time on the Quiet Wall to think about what they did. All ends well when Omek, Yelfred, and Q-B share an after-school game of eyeball in the peedle pit, and Omek and Yelfred realize there are best friends and best, best friends. Antoinette Portis’ vibrant illustrations and playful text will tickle readers’ funny bones. Don’t forget to look at the end pages for some first and last laughs.

An Out of this World Book!

September 15, 2016

I’m always on the lookout for picture books that entertain readers – especially if I’m reading it multiple times to youngsters. While at our local library, I found a book that does just that.

Best Frints in the Whole Universe is written and illustrated by Antoinette Portis − an award-winning author. Kids and adults who have a lively sense of humor will love this book. Portis has a wonderful grasp of wordplay. She uses words that are spelled and pronounced differently but are easily translated into our everyday language. The illustrations are bold, bright, and hysterical. The theme is friendship, but sometimes these friends don’t always get along. A poke in the eye, a bite on the tail, some angry words, and a ruined spossip are actions that could mean the end of their relationship, but these quirky characters manage to patch things up. No matter how you say it or read it, the two will always be “best frints.” Don’t forget to look at the end pages. It’s a picture dictionary of words used on the planet Boborp. If you want an out of this world experience, read this book!

Make sure to go to your library and find other great books.

Don’t miss next week’s blog. The winner of the Toby giveaway will be announced! If you want a chance to win a swag bag and the book, make a comment on my last week’s blog before 11:59 tonight, 9-15-16.
