An affirmation of enduring friendship and an adventure story, all rolled into one. The best friend of our youth has no replacement—ever. Though we may start out as “two peas in a pod,” we often lose touch with one another. In this affecting tale of two adults who reclaim their childhood bond after thirty years apart, the comforts of friendship are affirmed with humor and wit. The second story, “The Frog Jumped Twice,” recalls a childhood lesson, learned at no small cost, that comes to full flower in adulthood. As usual, Davis deftly disguises a realization of enduring values in the guise of humor and remembrance.
