Sometimes the unlikeliest friends form the greatest friendships.

Yak and Dove are complete opposites. Yak is large and Dove is small. Yak has fur and Dove has feathers. Yak is polite and Dove is ill-mannered. Yak likes quiet and Dove likes noise. One day, as Yak and Dove list their differences, they come to the conclusion that maybe they aren’t meant to be friends. In the hope of finding a new best friend, Yak holds auditions. But when a small feathered contestant sings Yak’s favorite song, the two begin to think that maybe they are alike after all . . .

A funny, charming picture book from a dynamic duo. Yak and Dove whimsically captures the highs and lows of friendship through the three interconnected tales of two very different friends.
