Felicity & Cordelia are the best of bunny friends. They do almost everything together, but it just so happens that Felicity is more of an adventure type gal and Cordelia likes to snuggle down with a good book at home. No matter their differences though, when they do separate as Felicity goes off on an adventure they’re always on each others minds, always hoping for the best and awaiting their reunion.

This is truly just a delightful story. I loved everything about it. From the illustrations t

Two bunny friends, Felicity and Cordelia, have different ideas about what fun is. Cordelia likes to stay home and Felicity wants to go on an adventure in a hot air balloon. Felicity heads out alone, while Cordelia worries that her friend is not warm enough or is hungry with not enough food. Felicity does indeed have adventures in the hot air balloon, but eventually the balloon sinks to the ground and Felicity must find her way home. While this sounds all wildly exciting, the adventures are in ...more

Felicity is constantly dreaming of the next challenge, and eager to leap into it half-prepared; Cordelia is a homebody, always worrying about Felicity when she's gone. They're both right. This delightful children's story shows how very different personalities can be perfect matches for each other. It's also one of the most implicitly lesbian-friendly children books I've read, without ever defining Felicity and Cordelia's relationship. The illustrations are simple and cheering.

Two bunnies, one cautious and the other adventurous, argue over taking a trip via a hot air balloon. Felicity goes while Cordelia stays home, and disaster ensues. After returning home in a quite unusual way, Felicity is left contemplating a scuba diving adventure while Cordelia has a book on how to play the guitar. A delightful way to explore the importance of planning ahead!

I liked this book. Two bunnies, Felicity and Cordelia. They are best friends. Felicity decides to go on an adventure in her balloon. Cordelia stays home. There isn't much action, and there's a lot of talk about pie.

I did like the ending though. Cute story, just not enough to wow me.

An okay book about two friends with many differences. The book starts well but it doesn't seem to go anywhere. They are different (one prefers adventures, one likes to stay home); they are friends, that's about it.

Maybe is wasn't my day for books that feature rabbits. A book about friendship, and waiting for a friend to return.
