Fraser the Forest Ranger is on a mission: to find one true friend. He searches far and wide, but he might just discover a best friend is closer than he thinks.
Fraser is a Forest Ranger and he loves his job. He checks on the trees, he checks on the animals, and he always ends his day with a stack of pancakes by the fire. But being a forest ranger can get lonely. Fraser spends his nights, weekends, and even birthdays alone. So, Fraser sets out to find a friend. He travels far. But the beach is too hot, the zoo makes him miss his own animal friends back home, and everyone in the city is too busy. All hope seems lost, but could it be that Fraser is just one wrong turn away from a true friend after all?
Matthew Schufman’s heartwarming debut featuring his bold and expressive illustrations make Fraser the Forest Ranger a friend that young readers will be asking to visit again and again.
