From New York Times bestselling illustrator Derek Anderson comes the story of Sam and Harry, two pals whose friendship is tested when Henry fails as Sam excels.

Harry and Sam are best friends who do everything together. Like build castles. Jump into ponds. And swing on swings.

But when Harry realizes that Sam can build bigger, jump higher, and swing better than he can, he decides he’d be happier without Sam. All by himself, Harry can be the greatest! All by himself, Harry is…

Well, Harry is…

Alone. Is being the best at everything worth it if you don’t have a friend to share the fun with?
