Best Friend in the Whole World by Sandra Salsbury
Roland is a solitary individual living a quiet life of simple comforts: drawing, music, and tea. But something is missing from his life. He realizes that he needs a friend.
On his walk through the forest something catches his eye. To the casual observer it appears to be a pine cone. Roland knows that this is something more. This might be the friend he longs for. He names his discovery Milton. Together the companions enjoy similar interests.
Then the unthinkable happens. Roland finds signs posted throughout the forest for a missing friend. Could this mean that Milton is a best friend to someone else? Initially Roland rationalizes that the missing posters are about a different pine cone.
Observation: Be sure to note the cover. A pine cone peeks out from behind a tree, hoping to be noticed.
