Faraway Friends by Russ Cox
What do you do when your best friend moves far away? In this charming picture book, Maine author and illustrator Russ Cox shows readers how to channel sadness and boredom into something out of this world. Sheldon and his dog Jet decide to build a rocket ship. Young readers will delight in their adventures. A fun read-aloud best for children ages 4-8.
