Yelfred and Omek have been best frints since they were little blobbies. They play and snack, and sometimes they even fight, all in a language similar to but slightly different from, English. When Omek decides to borrow Yelfred's new spaceship without asking (and then crashes it), it sparks the biggest fight yet. Can these two best frints make up and move on?

Award-winning picture Book creator Antoinette Portis delivers a new universe of cleverness and imagination in this hilarious, sweet, and otherworldly book about friendship. 

My Thoughts: 
On planet Boborp, 'teef' are long and tempers are short, but Yelfred and Omek know that best 'frints' are forever, so no matter who lost the eye ball in the peedle pit or who 'smackled' who's 'spossip' (spaceship), they know that they can 'flix' things and be 'frints' again.

This was a cute little story with a lot of made up words. Kids will have fun figuring out what they actually mean. They aren't difficult words but early readers might have a little trouble with them and might need the story read aloud. The story itself is still fun with it's colorful illustrations and the shenanigans of the little aliens will certainly entertain your little ones.
