Story of Diva and Flea
Children's - Grade 1-2, Age 6-7
Make Way For BooksIt was said of Diva: "…if anything ever happened, no matter how big or small, Diva would yelp and run away. Diva was very good at her job." And of Flea: "A great flaneur (someone who roams the streets to see what there is to see) has seen everything, but still looks for more, because there is always more to discover. Flea was a really great flaneur." So, when the two crossed paths, there was hardly anything they held in common, at least at first. Through charming text and illustrations brimming with personality, Mo Willems unfolds a tale of discovery that involves courageously venturing beyond self-imposed boundaries. A feel-good story of trust, growth, and friendship.
