Louie and Hector are best friends — but when some funny secrets get revealed, their friendship is put to the test.

Louie and Hector are the best friends in the universe. Get ready to laugh out loud as the two boys fall in and out and eventually back into their best friendship ever through a series of funny secrets that neither one was supposed to reveal. Each episode is told in a journal format in four parts: "Best Friends in the Universe," "Best Friends in the Universe Forever and Ever," "Worst Friends in the Universe," and finally "Worst Secret Keepers in the Universe But Still Best Friends Forever and Ever."

And Louie and Hector's comical dialogue will have kids howling!

Louie: "I'm going to make up an ugly dance move called the Horrible Hector."
Hector: "I'm going to invent a disgusting, rotten drink called the Icky Louie."
Both: "That's it! This book is canceled."

But just like most friendships, Hector and Louie find a way to stay best friends forever — but maybe not the most trusted secret keepers!
