Alex and Lulu: Two of A Kind

Alex and Lulu: Two of A Kind. Lorena Siminovich. 2009. [March 2009] Candlewick Press. 32 pages.

Alex and Lulu are best friends. They love to stop on their way home from school and play in the park. On sunny days, they just can't get enough running, jumping, and swinging.

While this dog-and-cat pair love to do a few things together, these two friends also have their differences. There are some things that Lulu loves that Alex just doesn't. And vice versa. So will these differences come between them? Alex worries that they might be too different from one another to be friends, best friends. Luckily, Lulu is able to reassure him, convince him that they can be best friends no matter what. That their differences are a good thing in fact.
