Garland, Michael Big and Little Are Best Friends. PICTURE BOOK. Orchard (Scholastic), 2017. $15.
Big (an elephant) and Little (a mouse) are best of friends. Despite the fact that they are about as opposite as can be, even if they have a disagreement, they know that they are always there for each other.
In most cases the things that each character likes seems to opposite of what you might think (Big likes to nibble, Little likes to eat). The rhyming text is very simple and works well to emphasize the unlikely pair. Its message of friends not needing to be the same is always needed.
