Suffering sumac! Donnellan has written a charming tale set in her beloved pine trees. This a shoe horn tale—snugly easing the younger generation into acceptance of both the now and the yet to be. Henbit is a delightful character who unknowingly reveals much about herself and her youth as she mentors the impatient Maypop. Like a lovely soothing tea, the story blends herbal folklore with charming characters and themes. Oh, how I’d like to have a cup of tea of Henbit.

This is a book that just begs to be read aloud. The Friendibles characters are both sweet and wry, and will appeal to children and adults. Ms. Donnellan creates a humorous contrast between what the characters say and what they are actually thinking. Maypop and Henbit really come to life, even in a short format. And how nice to see a story about different generations working effectively together. We will look forward to the next installment of the tale of these unique forest characters.
