Mimi and Bear Make a Friend
Picture Book: 2017 – FSG
Mimi is used to being the best mountain climber, the best treasure hunter, and the best trapeze artist in the park―that is, until a new kid turns up. What's worse is that he is better than her at all of these things. But when a need for a friend arises, Mimi learns that she is a really good one. Mimi and Bear Make a Friend brings a sweet, charming story to little ones learning what it means to be a friend.
"Warm and fuzzy and very reassuring."
Publisher's Weekly says:
"Trasler skillfully characterizes Mimi as understandably anxious but also resolutely independent, and the story’s wrap-up also underscores Mimi’s ability to solve problems on her own. The softly textured, substantial shapes of Trasler’s illustrations reinforce the subtle emotional narrative—just like Mimi, the pictures have a plainspoken eloquence and an intriguing dimensionality."
