Dot in Larryland

The Big Little Book of an Odd-Sized Friendship

By Marx, Patricia & Chast, Roz

Publishers Summary:
He may be huge and she may be tiny, but Dot and Larry are destined to become best friends. Dot, a teeny tiny little gal who’s no bigger than a dust mite, is very lonely and would love to find a friend. Larry, a guy who’s so big his head is always in the clouds, doesn’t think anyone understands him. But a chance meeting at a diner (just after Larry’s fifteenth burger) leads Dot right to the most humongous man in the world, and they discover that their differences actually make them pretty similar. Featuring Roz Chast’s distinctive and hilarious illustrations, Dot in Larryland will have readers looking very high (and very low) for their next best friend.
