Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fans of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie will enjoy Rabbit and Pigs clever back-and-forth which shows the funny ways friends bounce ideas and feelings off each other.

Rabbit just adores his friend Pig. So he is excited to make a list of all the things he loves about Pig. And who better to help him write the list than Pig himself? But Pig is busy, and keeps sending Rabbit away. But no matter what Pig does, Rabbit is inspired to add another thing to his list. When Pig says, “Rabbit, I'm starting to lose my patience!” Rabbit has #6—“I love Pig because hes not afraid to show his feelings!” Fortunately, Pigs dwindling patience is rewarded when Rabbit completes his list—and the two realize exactly why they are such good pals.

Review:

"Kirk borrows from the comic rhythms of Abbott and Costello (or is it Burns and Allen?) in his funny tribute to friendship. Pig is sitting thoughtfully at his desk when Rabbit stops by to announce that he's making a list of 'ten things I love about you.' This is all well and good ('Wow, ten!' says Pig), except that Rabbit is a wee bit obsessive about it. Everything Pig says or does becomes fodder for the list, including his growing frustration with Rabbit's relentlessness. 'I'm starting to lose my patience!' immediately inspires entry 'Number 6 — I love Pig because he's not afraid to show his feelings.' Kirk (the Library Mouse series) pulls a sweet switcheroo in the final pages of his story — Pig turns out to have list-making ambitions of his own — but not before readers will be chuckling at how two like-minded souls can find themselves at cross-purposes. Kirk's visual style is a departure of sorts: instead of his customary sculptural renderings, his digitally colored drawings, painted on plywood and outlined in scraggly ink, give the proceedings a warm, handcrafted feel. Ages 5 — 8. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
