"Kevin Henkes's charming story about friends who are truly "two peas in a pod" comes to life in this production. Chester and Wilson do everything the same and don't know quite what to make of their new neighbor, Lilly. In the end, they learn that different methods of doing things are just fine. Narrator Laura Hamilton keeps listeners engaged, providing a distinct voice for each character. Background music and sound effects enhance the tale."

"Chester and Wilson. Wilson and Chester. That's the way it was until eccentric Lilly moves into the neighborhood to upset the balance. Narrator Hamilton reads carefully and slowly, skillfully assigning different voices to Chester, Wilson, and Lilly, bringing the characters alive. Background music and ambient sounds, such as falling rain and splashing water, enhance the friends' activities as they are pictured in the text. Lively music accompanies the stories. As in all Live Oak productions, page-turn signals are an option."
