THREE FRIENDS

Milton (The Early Riser), Leo (The Late Bloomer) and Herman (The Helper) get together for a romp through more dreamy, lush Aruego/Dewey landscapes. What do they do? Well, they make friends, play games, even have many adventures. . . though the ""Adventure of the Mysterious Snowman"" and ""Adventure of the Haunted House"" are purely visual fantasies, and Herman, who participates in most of the fun from inside a water-filled bottle, seems a bit left out. Kraus' philosophy seems to be that these popular friends don't really have to apply themselves to anything; they can be lovable just hanging out together. And since the friends' freedom has put Aruego and Dewey at liberty to create more surreal backgrounds and slapstick situations, this laissez-faire approach works surprisingly well.
