We all know why the bear went over the mountain, but it’s unclear what Pierre, a beret-wearing fox, will see when he journeys up and over the mountain in his red sport coupe. Lonely in his little house, he hopes to find a friend on the other side of the peak. Pierre zips through zigzag hairpin turns, beeping a “TOOT! TOOT!” warning before turning tight corners, but he screeches to a halt when he nearly hits a wandering goat. Inviting Goat to come along on his quest, the pair whiz along until a sheep crosses their path. This stop-and-go story is slightly predictable, but Pierre’s road trip is a fun read-aloud reminder that friends can be found wherever you look. (Ages 3–7)
