Capybara Is Friends with Everyone

Hi, hello. My name is Capybara and I think it’s important to be a great friend. Take it from me, I have 4,382 friends!

Capybara will do anything for his friends. But it’s exhausting—and when Capybara meets a potential new friend who doesn’t seem to be responding to his advances, Capybara learns a valuable lesson. His friends like him just for who he is!

From the creator of Smug Seagull and Just be Jelly and illustrator of Shine Like a Unicorn comes a funny, heartwarming story about friendship.

This book is an excellent teaching tool for lessons on friendship and creating boundaries within those relationships. It is a funny story for families to share, and a great read-aloud at home or in the classroom!

Maddie Frost is an author-illustrator from Grafton, MA. Some of her books include Smug Seagull, Just be Jelly, Wakey Birds, Shine Like a Unicorn and more.
