ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Jack and Alex meet most days in the sandpit at the playground. Jack likes trucks and Alex likes dolls, and together they combine their respective likes. Even when there is a disagreement, they find a solution easily enough without too much drama, and then find the one thing they both like very much indeed... A lovely picture book that shows how you can be friends, like different things, but still get along famously. Illustrated by Bob Graham, in his distinctively gentle, slightly subversive and entirely expressive style. Preschool age. Lindy Jones


Jack likes trucks. Alex likes dolls. Just what will they play together?

Jack and Alex meet almost every morning in the sandbox at the playground. Jack likes trucks - big ones. Alex likes dolls - pink ones, with sparkles. And tutus. But Jack doesn't want to play dolls, and Alex doesn't want to play trucks. Luckily for Jack and Alex, the day is saved with a little bit of compromise and the easy acceptance that characterizes true friendship... What about dolls who drive trucks?

From Ann Stott and Bob Graham, the multi award-winning creator of Silver Buttons and A Bus Called Heaven, comes a story of friendship, perfect for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes.
