* “Rabbit and Pig join the ranks of duos that grapple with the intricacies of friendship—and impressively stand out. . . . Kirk gets the comic timing just right. . . . Although great for reading aloud, put this at the top of the list for using as a springboard for creative writing or a discussion starter about what qualities make a good friend.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“A charmingly illustrated book about self-expression, sharing, cooperation, gratitude—what’s not to love?” — The New York Times Book Review
“The devoted Rabbit’s clueless annoying of his friend is deadpan funny. . . . The textured look of the painted wood panels has visual appeal. . . . May inspire kids to take a keener look at the charms of their own buddies. . . . A useful starting point for a classroom or family project of listing a friend’s or family member’s good points.” — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A sweet book about friendship and having a positive outlook. . . . The positive twists are refreshing–there are two ways to interpret Pig’s impatience, and Rabbit unfailingly looks on the bright side. . . . Kirk’s illustrations perfectly capture Rabbit’s always cheerful nature and Pig’s growing irritation. . . . Ideal for group sharing. . . . Provides a framework for looking for admirable traits in classmates and feeling acknowledged by others and would be a good choice to prompt discussions, suggesting that students find positive things to say about one another.” — School Library Journal
