Bogart and Vinnie - A Completely Made-Up Story of True Friendship

STARRED Review from Publishers Weekly!

"It's a witty, bighearted story that makes full use of this duo's comic talents..."
"Moving and emotionally charged, the book is capped with a powerful close-up of the child’s face on the rear cover with the legend “What would you do if you had the chance to help a person find freedom?"
Unspoken by Henry Cole
