I saw a very cute comics that my friend shared on social media one day. It's a giraffe and a chicken standing next to the water, and the chicken said to the giraffe "Dude! You look ridiculous!" because it looks funny when the giraffe bows its head low to drink water. And in the second panel, the giraffe went into the water, so it doesn't need to bend its long neck to drink. Isn't it adorable? And after some time, a friend gave Hathy picture book as a gift. Then we realized it is the same author of the cute comics I saw online. We read this book together, and it's really nice. Here are some stories about it!

The author, Liz Climo, is an American cartoonist, animator, children's book author, and illustrator. She has been animating on the television series The Simpsons for 14 years. During an interview, she said in her animal kingdom, all the members are a little social dysfunction, but they always grapple with wit and humor. The way she tells the story makes me think of another comic, The Far Side. They both put a smile on my face after reading them.

Liz Climo has published 3 picture books. The one we received it's called Lobster Is the Best Medicine: A Collection of Comics About Friendship. The interactions between the animals in each story are heart melting. The stories might be a bit quirky, but they are actually what would happen between you and your friends in life. For example, the grilled lizard always tries to help the rabbit with its problems, it makes me think of the friends who help me a lot; the snake uses its flexible body to bring smiles and laughter for its friends, it reminds me of the fun time I shared with my friends.

This book is perfect to read with your children. There are mostly pictures combined with a few words and sentences. I read this book with my little ones when they are tired. We have a great time reading together, and they are always so curious about the stories. I really enjoy reading this book with them and finding out what's going on with the animals.

Do you think picture books are made for only kids? I think adults can enjoy them too! Even the stories are very simple, but I believe children and adults can both learn from them.
