Two adorable friends are back in Beth Ferry and Gergely Dudas’ Fox & Rabbit Make Believe.

Fox and Rabbit are the very best of friends. They do everything together. Good things like getting ice cream and not-so-good things like getting bad haircuts. But when they meet a new friend, Owl, Fox isn’t so sure if there’s enough friendship to go around. Soon, Fox learns that it’s easy to be friends with Rabbit and Owl. They have lots of fun exploring the depths of Owl’s big imagination. Together, Fox and Rabbit and Owl sail the high seas, get swallowed by a whale, defeat evil woodchucks, and mor e— all from the comfort of the playground. —Synopsis provided by Harry N. Abrams

I’ve had a hard time keeping track of my copy of Fox & Rabbit Make Believe. That’s because my 6-year-old keeps sneaking it out of my office when I’m not looking. She loved the first book, Fox & Rabbit, and had read the new book multiple times.

I’m not personally a fan of graphic novels. They’ve never really resonated with me. I do, however, believe they are a great option for readers of all ages, especially emerging ones.

To be honest, these books are probably below my child’s reading level, but I don’t care one bit. If she wanted to read board books, I’d let her. As long as she wants to read, I’m a happy mama.

And there’s more to the Fox & Rabbit books than just reading. The books celebrate friendship, problem-solving and encourage imagination. In fact, my daughter has been writing her own Fox & Rabbit adventures.

So rather than tell you what I think, I’ll tell you what she thinks: “I like them because they’re fun. I like Fox and Rabbit’s adventures. They make me laugh.”
