This review is from: Just Girlfriends: More Than Just Chit-Chat & Chocolate (Hardcover)
"A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside" (A.A. Milne)
If you've never used your superior powers of deductive reasoning to determine that the effects of a fudge brownie à la mode can be counteracted by a diet drink at the same meal, then chances are that:
1. You're not of the feminine persuasion
2. You don't meet your girlfriends for lunch on a regular basis
3. You may not appreciate this picture book.
This is a compact and delightful gift book expressly created for those special women who know you better than you know yourself. It contains more than forty adorable, full color photographs of animals, each with a "girlfriend-appropriate" phrase, quote or saying, ranging from PMS to Winnie the Pooh (see above).
Recommended as a "just because" gift for the ladies of your posse who know when it's better to tell you the truth up front, and when to hedge their bets a little. Better yet, send it with a personal note thanking them for always watching your back.
"The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away" (Barbara Kingsolver)

A.A. Milne? Or Winnie the Pooh? I would attribute the honey quote to Pooh!
This does sound like a neat book. And you write a fun review.

Hey girlfriend - A.A. Milne wrote the Winnie the Pooh books

OH! This sounds like just what I'm looking for for a gf who truly understands the brownie/diet coke equation. Nice one, A.
