Do You Want To Be My Friend by Eric Carle - Picture Book
On the first page, a mouse is looking for a friend and asks an animal to be his friend and the illustrator shows a picture of an animal's tail. The next page reveals the rest of the animal; a few of the animals in this story are a horse, alligator, lion, etc. After meeting various tails, the mouse finally finds another mouse who answers his question and says, "Yes." I love the bold and vibrant colors and animation in the illustrations; although the colors are not the typical colors of the animals, it is appealing to the eye.
