“Ryan's clever Ribbit Rabbit is sure to entertain, delight, and amuse readers of all ages! Frog and Bunny are best friends who do everything together. Whether drawing pictures, swimming, or fighting monsters, the two are inseparable. Of course, Frog and Bunny can't always see eye to eye, but the two are too close to let little things come between them. With clever puns and fabulous action verbs, Ryan crafts a masterpiece, and Lowery's illustrations are winningly simplistic and amusing.”
— Rebecca Moore, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA

Description


RIBBIT RABBIT, GRIP IT, GRAB IT! Don't miss the board book edition of this endearing, tongue-twisty story that celebrates the ups and downs of friendship.

Ribbit Rabbit features an effortlessly clever text that, in less than 150 words, captures the ups and downs of young friendships. Combined with adorably fresh illustrations by the prolific Mike Lowery, Ribbit Rabbit is the perfect choice to read aloud with youngest of readers.

Praise For…


“The rhythmic, onomatopoeic text is a pretty music, the kind of song you'd sing in the dark to lift your spirits. Equally joyful and engaging-and that's a tall order-is Lowery's artwork. . . . A mingling of the ridiculous with the sublime for a spellbinding effect.” —starred review, on RIBBIT RABBIT

“This economy of language makes it ideal for reading aloud or for beginning readers. However, the illustrations marry well with the text, and fill in the narrative where the writing leaves it open.” —SLJ on RIBBIT RABBIT

“Ryan has so much fun coming up with increasingly ridiculous wildlife . . . this book will stand up to multiple rereadings.” —Kirkus Reviews on ANIMAL HOUSE

“The use of portmanteau is clever, and the large, acrylic illustrations are imaginative, bringing each part of the animal house to life.” —SLJ on ANIMAL HOUSE
