Publisher Comments:

In rhyming verse thats a deliberate homage to Dr. Seuss, poet and picture book author Mary Ann Hoberman takes on quarreling and its consequences, and shows how turning fighters into friends leads to greater peace. It all starts with a fighting brother and sister, who make up with the help of another sibling. When the family begins fighting with their noisy neighbors, its music that brings them together. Soon the whole town is marching in a parade, and eventually the parade swells to include the whole country, and even the animals. By the end of this optimistic picture book, the whole world is united in friendship.

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
This over-the-top story about arguing and making up again starts slowly, with an all-too-familiar fight between siblings, and builds to a joyous, crashing crescendo as friends, family, neighbours and complete strangers annoy and irk each other, learn to overcome and even appreciate their differences, and band together in a rollicking, ever-moving parade of friendship-building.
Utterly without platitudes or corniness, "And to Think That We Thought That We?d Never Be Friends" is a grand tale of the joys of friendship that reminds kids how negligible our petty disagreements are in the greater scheme of things, presented in a highly enjoyable story for reading aloud.
