The book bursts with wordplay, heart and humor…The Rabbit and Robot books are perfect for kids who like their stories with a side of silliness.
—The New York Times Book Review
Words and pictures provide ample humor throughout the story, with details that are sure to provoke laughter, such as Robot’s addition of flies to movie popcorn in order to accommodate Ribbit’s tastes…Engrossing!
The breezy message about jealousy is pitch-perfect for elementary-schoolers navigating new friendships. Meanwhile, Bell’s cartoonish yet highly expressive illustrations add helpful visual cues to the straightforward text, and the episodic chapters—all cleverly titled “Ribbit”—are tasty morsels for emerging readers.
Easy text will draw in emerging readers as well as those ready for a simple chapter book much like Arnold Lobel’s “Frog and Toad” series. The digital illustrations are expressive and joyful and will keep readers engaged in the plot. A fun and pleasing friendship story for young readers learning that three doesn’t have to be a crowd.
