A fun, heartfelt new picture book about the power of making friends.
Gerald lives alone. He has everything he needs. He spends most of his days in his yard, watering the plants, picking the fruits and vegetables, and making preserves for the winter. In the evenings he has dinner at 5, reads 20 pages of his book, has a chamomile tea, and goes to bed at 7. Every day is the same, and that suits Gerald just fine. Until one day, when an amazing travelling market comes to town! Gerald has so much fun playing with the two mice that run it that he forgets all about his routine. Can Gerald learn that having everything you need is no fun unless you have someone to share it with?
