I've known Buddy since the first day of kindergarten. I think he's so annoying when he can't keep up, when he is too fast, and when he talks or not. It's just that I sometimes forget to be annoyed. However having someone around to keep you company and annoy you is a wonderful thing....

Buddy Is So Annoying Reviews
This contemporary Chinese picture book is translated skillfully by Adam Lanphier to convey the vibrant humor and authentic childhood friendship that can last a lifetime. Another book I selected for Candied Plums.
It's a tale about childhood friendship between an unnamed boy and Buddy. They meet on the first day of kindergarten and the little boy immediately complains: He is annoying when he can't keep up, when he is faster, when he talks and when he doesn't talk. You know how it is. Sometimes you need someone by your side and being bugged once in a while isn't so bad. Some drama enters when Buddy goes on vacation after the kindergarten graduation ceremony and the boy really misses him. The strong, expressive gouache paintings advance the story clearly. A Simplified Chinese English bilingual edition publishes simultaneously, which features simplified characters and pinyin. Backmatter includes a list of words and expressions for Chinese learners and the translated English text with thumbnails of the illustrations.
It reminds me of my childhood, the happy time with my little buddies: playing together, quarrelling for some trivial matters, and then making up again....My little son also likes it very much, the anthropomorphized boar Buddy is so lovely that makes him scream with laughter every time.
