COVER REVEAL and Interview: Fox & Rabbit by Beth Ferry | Mile High ...Summary:  Fox and Rabbit enjoy each other’s company and make some new friends in this five-story graphic novel.  They take a trip to the ice cream store, enter a bubble-blowing contest (with disastrous results for Fox’s fur), make an imaginative new friend, get lost in a corn maze, and carve jack-o-lanterns with all their friends.  One story leads into the next, giving the whole book some continuity.  Their friends, a sparrow who loves to eat and a turtle who usually misses out on most of the action, make cameo appearances in each story.  Book 1 was released last week (April 21) and the graphic above showing a sample page is from book 1.  96 pages; grades 1-4.

Pros:  These gently humorous stories will undoubtedly be a big hit with young graphic novel fans.  The full-color illustrations and animal characters are appealing, and kids will connect to the everyday events and friendships in the stories.

Cons:  Due to the strange state of the world, I was only able to get an advanced reader copy of book 2, so I’m not able to review book 1, which would generally make a lot more sense.
