I Love Lucy: The Joys of Friendship

I Love Lucy's Lucy and Ethel are TV's original BFFs. This celebration of their friendship is the perfect way to share the laughter, joy, and love of best girlfriends.

Everybody loves Lucy. And nothing has been more enduring, from the 180 episodes of I Love Lucy that ran from 1951 to 1957 and have never been off the air since, than Lucy Ricardo's deep friendship with Ethel Mertz. Usually finding themselves in zany, hysterical situations, these best friends have always come through it (even with chocolate all over their faces) together. This book celebrates Lucy and Ethel's friendship, by illustrating, through images and text, not only it's timelessness, but universality.

"I Love Lucy": The Joys of Friendship features more than fifty hilarious images of Lucy and Ethel paired with quotes from the show, "Well, of course, I'll need the help of a very loyal friend"; "Good friends are worth more than the price of a television set"; "What's wrong with good friends harmonizing a little? That's what the world needs more of"; and affirmations such as True friendship knows no distance, The only thing better than a good friend is a good friend and chocolate, and We can always make each other laugh.
