On planet Boborp, all the childrinx go to skrool, just like here on planet Earth.

Omek and Yelfred are always late, but it's okay because they are always late together, and everyone knows that best frints do everything together.

That is, until Yelfred meets Q-B. Omek is good at sharing many things, but he's not so good at sharing his best frint.

But with a little understanding and a friendly game of Eyeball in the peedle pit, Omek might find that there's room for just one more best frint after all.

Antoinette Portis attended the UCLA School of Fine Arts and is a former creative director at Disney Consumer Products. Among her many books for children areFroodle, Best Frints in the Whole Universe, Wait,and the forthcomingNow. She lives in Studio City, California.

Praise for Best Frints in the Whole Universe (4 starred reviews): "Those seeking materials on friendship, especially for storytimes, should add this wonderfully wacky take on the subject." - School Library Journal, starred review "Her dot-matrix layers of retro color add dimension to the simple shapes and close-up images, and her flamboyant misspellings and soundalike words let beginning readers in on the sly jokes while crafting an all-too-knowing portrait of what frintship often looks like." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "Portis' bright, odd landscapes, flora and fauna digitally colored in vibrant hues, and her two grinning friends are all sweetly demented and irresistible." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Her digitally colored mixed-media illustrations feature simple shapes-lots of circles and triangles-vivid hues, thick black lines, and pop art-like textures." - Horn Book, starred review
