Illustrated by AnnaLaura Cantone

"Full of imaginative details and delightfully quirky illustrations." -- Publishers Weekly

"Children will enjoy the humorous antics of this unusual duo." -- School Library Journal

"Opposites attract -- or do they? Diametrically different, chums Prudence and Moxie put their friendship to the test. A classic show-off, Moxie loves being the center of attention.... Moxie's nonstop antics embarrass quiet, practical Prudence.... Moxie's reckless personality assumes obsessive proportions in the amusing acrylic-and-collage illustrations, which show her gleefully engaged in one outrageous dare after another while bemused Prudence watches in horror. Their imaginative representation as whimsical critters (moose and raccoon) adds to the humor. This fanciful foray should tickle readers who have their own mismatched friends." --Kirkus Reviews

"There is humor to spare amid the lesson that friends can be different and still be friends."--Children's Literature
