Picture Book Puzzler: Friends

In coordination with Eric Carle's newest picture book, Friends, and our newest exhibition Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile and Friends: The Art of Bernard Waber, I thought it would be fun to take a look at all of the iconic pairs of friends in picture books. Can you name each one? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of the week with the answers!
