A short chapter book about the meaning of true friendship
Can an elephant who is afraid of mice ever become best friends with a tiny little mouse?
Toribio & García break the myth and present the story of an unlikely friendship between a gentle and observant elephant, Toribio, and an adventurous mouse named García. Find out in this short chapter book delightfully well-written by Ricardo Alcántara, and amazingly illustrated by Sophia Touliatou.
It just so happens that García met Toribio one day. Since then, they have been inseparable and go together everywhere. And although they see the world in a different way, they enjoy each other’s company and have fun learning from each other.
In one single book you will find three stories: Good Friends, Toribio’ Small Eyes and The Costume Contest. Which is your favorite?
