I Don't Care
Two Caldecott honorees and real-life best friends team up to illustrate a lyrical story of friendship, from bestselling author Julie Fogliano.

Like the two stars of this story, illustrators Molly Idle and Juana Martinez-Neal know that petty differences just make a good friendship stronger. As artwork passed back and forth between their mailboxes, childhood versions of each artist came to life and came together on the page into one unified creation. The simple palette of teal and yellow over graphite was an easy choice: their two favorite colors.

Award-winning author Julie Fogliano's rhythmic rhymes bring it all together, expressing the unconditional love any best friend can relate to: "Mostly I care that you're you and I'm me, and I care that we're us, and I care that we're we."
