Hey Presto! by Nadia Shireen

"Presto is a brilliant magician! So when he and Monty join the carnival to start a magic show, their future looks bright. But as their success grows, fame goes to Monty's head-- he begins bossing Presto around, and he steals the spotlight. Soon, Presto has lost both his show and his friend. Will Monty realize how much he needs Presto before it's too late?" (book jacket)
A very good way to introduce the more complicated aspects of friendship-- drifting apart and coming back together again. Poor Presto takes as much of Monty's demands and inconsideration before he leaves. Much like life, when friendships go a little sour, it usually takes one friend walking away before the other has realized what they let go.

This book is targeted for ages 4-8, but a really patient 3 year old would probably sit through it as well.
