In The Three Funny Friends by Charlotte Zolotow, originally published in 1961, but with new artwork by Linda Bronson, Guy-guy, Bickerina and Mr. Dobie do all sorts of things the girl heroine would never do, but her parents can't see any of them at all. Bronson's geometric forms and swirling lines convey the antics of the girl's imaginary animal friends in humorous artwork that conveys the girl's gently rebellious nature.
