    I wasn't sure what a frendible was when I downloaded this story but it was very simply explained at the beginning. I think they make great characters. Kids should love them. I recommend that parents download this tale and read it to their little ones; it's cute and it has a good lesson embedded within it. I expect to be hearing more about frendibles in the near future.
