Today's picture is for Denise. She likes Dean! Dean has a baby sister called Dee. He is a very good brother. He plays with Dee every day. In 'At Home' Dee is very small but 'At the Store' she is bigger. Do you have a brother or a sister? I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers.
I am very happy today. My friend Yildiray sent me the Good Friends song in Turkish. Look at the picture of the man talking to a piece of ice cream in Turkey. Could you eat all that? I could! Do you talk to ice cream? I don't. Just potatoes!
birbirine yardimci olur

Tala med varandra,
Lyssna på varandra,
This classroom in Vietnam has their own Potato Pals mural. A mural is a painting on the wall. Ask before you do one! Which Potato Pal can you see? Yes, it's Joy from 'In the Evening'.
('In the Evening' is in Series 1. It's about Joy and her dog Poppy. The topic is Feelings)
This is my son Kai with Joy! You can make one too. Just draw a Pal on some card and cut out holes for your fingers. Kai has put some red stickers on his fingers like shoes!
(Photocopying the Pals onto paper and then sticking it to card makes it quicker but not so much fun!)
This was the winning picture in the Potato Pals Art Contest 2007. It's by a boy called Yuuki. If you want, you can do a picture and send it to me. I am waiting! I like pictures of Potato Pals doing fun things. Why not draw a picture of YOU with your favourite Pal?
(please send all pictures to me, Patrick Jackson at this address: A207 Sun Heights, Yagoto Fujimi 1611, Showa Ward, Nagoya, Japan 466-0812 or as scanned images to firstname.lastname@example.org)
This is the flag of New Zealand. do you know where that is? Can you find it on your map. Many thanks to Janine, who with a little help from her Maori teacher, sent this fine translation of Good Friends

This is Buddy. He likes soccer. Can you play soccer too? Hi Buddy! That's a nice cap! Come to my house some time. We can play together. You can see Buddy and his family 'At the Zoo'.
(Buddy is the star of In the Morning and At the Zoo from Potato Pals. he is the sporty one! He only has one hair under that cap. Check out the barber's face in 'In Town')
