Overview
For fans of The Day the Crayons Quit, Little Pea, or How Are You Peeling?
What's a little piece of bread to do when he's feeling lonely? Find a friend, of course
And that's exactly what Peanut Butter tries to do. But sometimes friends are hard to come by, especially when Hamburger has to walk his (hot) dogs, Cupcake is too busy building castles in her sprinkle box, and Egg laughs so hard he starts to crack up Does Peanut Butter have a soulmate? Young readers will know the answer long before Peanut Butter does and laugh along with each mismatched pairing.
In a story that pairs silliness with poignancy, and friendship with anthropomorphic food, Terry Border, the photography mastermind behind the Bent Objects project, makes a triumphant entrance into the children's book world. Complete with a rhyming refrain, this is sure to be a favorite family read-aloud--and laugh-aloud.

Border takes ordinary household objects, gives them arms and legs made of wire, and takes brightly-lit, close-up photographs of the results. His first picture book stars a slice of bread slathered with peanut butter who’s new to the neighborhood and needs a friend. His blobby wire hands and feet are inherently funny, and his gestures are remarkably human. Peanut Butter wanders around with a soccer ball singing his signature invitational tune: “I’ll make you chuckle deep down in your belly/ And we’ll go together like Peanut Butter and...” He’s looking for jelly, of course, but he meets some other characters first. He recites his rhyme to a pink-iced confection shoveling in a sandbox, finishing, “And we’ll go together like Peanut Butter and... Cupcake!” “on’t hit my castle with your ball or I’ll be mad!” she snaps. An egg on a unicycle, French fries, and even a jump-roping meatball will divert readers until Peanut Butter finds the friend he’s looking for. Despite the predictability of the storyline, Border’s witty food comedy will lure children who are hungry for clever visual entertainment. Ages 3–5. (July)
