Pine & Boof: The Lucky Leaf
One blustery day, Boof the bear’s lucky red leaf gets swept away by the wind. Fortunately for him, Pine the porcupine just happens to walk by with his lucky compass—and the two set off on an adventure to find the lost leaf, only to discover true friendship in the process.
In a tale both silly and sweet, Pine & Boof: The Lucky Leaf tells the story of an unlikely friendship through highly original characters and vibrant illustrations that are impossible not to love.
Pine loves adventures and is on the search for one when he runs into Boof. He sees that Boof is upset and volunteers to help him find his leaf. After all, Pine has a lucky compass that will help them. In the end, they can't get Boof's leaf back, but he realizes he's found something better: a new friend that he'll never lose.
The illustrations were cute and the story has some humor in it that makes it flow better. It teaches that belongings aren't as fun as finding a friend. Pine and Boof are just beginning their friendship and I look forward to more adventures from them.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this story to children who love animals. It also is a good read because it emphasizes the value of friendship, which every child should learn.
