“This is a warm and satisfying follow-on to A Perfect Wonderful Day with Friends with another uplifting summer’s day.”

Julia Marshall, Publisher

Around the World with Friends

Raccoon finishes his book and is ready for his own adventure—he wants thrills, excitement, and to cross the ocean! He borrows everything he needs from his friends, who insist on coming along. They sail through rapids, collect sweet blackberries, chase away bees, and play soccer, until a little rain and thoughts of home bring their excursion to an end. That, thinks Raccoon, was the most thrilling magnificent adventure with friends I’ve ever had.

In this heartwarming follow-up to A Perfect Wonderful Day with Friends, Waechter shows how life is better when you bring along your friends and take what the day brings.

      An uplifting picture book with a read-aloud refrain about carefree days outside with friends, making adventure from nothing, and coming home happy to feed the chickens.

      Around the World with Friends is a follow up to A Perfect Wonderful Day with Friends and is another celebration of friendship, adventure and enjoying the simple things in life. Raccoon is inspired to have an adventure from his book and so sets off to gather equipment and friends to accompany him. They have a perfectly lovely day sharing the delights of an adventure. When it gets to nightfall, they all decide to go home and get cosy. Their trip may bot have been around the world but it was a perfectly wonderful day together. A brilliant book to share as we head into summer. Beautiful illustrations that bring a sense of wonder and adventure to the reader.
