Publisher's Description

Fun and friendship go together just as wonderfully as humorous characters and witty captions from the imaginative duo of artist Carla Ventresca and husband, cartoon co-creator Henry Beckett. Clever scenes feature friends indulging in shopping trips, walks in the rain, favorite desserts, and glasses of lemonade on the beach. These joyful cartoons celebrate the:

  • closeness of camaraderie
  • beauty of bon amies
  • laughter of longtime friends

This is the perfect, any-occasion gift for a special friend who makes every day more meaningful and every ordinary moment an extraordinary adventure.

Editorial Reviews

"What a treat! The book itself is adorable. I particularly like how you can open to any page and get a heartwarming nugget.  The illustrations are excellent, simple but thoughtful, with tiny details that are like perfect punctuation for the picture...such as the friends carrying ice cream cones as they crack jokes, or the little hands waving from ‘near' or ‘far'. It's details like these that give this book its special sauce, I think."
--Lee Topalian

"This book is great! I love it; The nice graphics went very well with the text and each page was an additional pleasure."
--Flora Ukoli

"When I'm Around You... is a wonderful book--the perfect gift for a friend. As I turned each page, I thought of a similar moment with one of my friends.  Carla and Henry have truly captured the essence of friendship with both text and illustration.  I can't wait to order copies for all of my friends."
--Mary Ward
