About the Book :
Somewhere in life
There must be someone
To take your hand
And share the torrid day.
Without the touch of friendship
There is no life, and we must fade away.
Discover a hidden pool with three young boys, laugh out loud as a little mouse makes demands on a lonely writer, follow the mischievous four feathers as they discover a baby lost in the hills, and witness the bond between a tiger and his master. Some stories will make you smile, some will bring tears to your eyes, some may make your heart skip a beat butall of them will renew your faith in the power of friendship.
