Hopper and Wilson by Maria Van Lieshout - OPTIONAL

Lieshout, Maria Van  Hopper and Wilson  Philomel Books, 2011.  $6.99  BOARD BOOK  Content: G. 
Hopper is a big stuffed elephant and his friend, Wilson is a little stuffed mouse.  They decide that they want to see what is at the end of the world, and embark in their boat out into the ocean.  While on their journey a big storm comes up and they are separated.  They eventually find each other and find their way back home, which they claim in the end of the world. 
The simple drawings are cute, and the reader will care that the two characters are reunited.  The story has a dreamy affect to it and the ending is satisfying.  Little readers will be entertained by this story of friendship. 
PREK-OPTIONAL. Reviewer, C. Peterson.
