Eunice and Kate
Written by Mariana Llanos | Illustrated by Elena Napoli
Eunice and Kate are best friends, but can their friendship weather a storm?
The girls live with their moms next door to each other in the heart of the city and have a lot in common—even though they have different dreams for the future.
Kate wants to be an astronaut and Eunice wants to be a ballet dancer. But when they draw portraits of each other in art class, things get mixed up. Eunice draws Kate as a ballet dancer and Kate draws Eunice as an astronaut, and they both get more than a little annoyed.
Can their friendship survive? With a little help from their moms, the girls come to learn the value of respecting each other’s different dreams. Eunice and Kate is a heartfelt new book by Mariana Llanos, illustrated by Elena Napoli, about how honoring our differences can strengthen our bonds.
This story about what it really means to be best friends will be released on National Make a Friend Day, February 11, 2020!
