I actually really liked this book. Great illustrations add to the story of Finklehopper Frog and Ruby Rabbit who are friends that stick together. Ruby Rabbit supports Finklehopper when he is getting attacked by bullies for wearing his clothes. And Finklehopper is there for Ruby when she finishes second in the race. The friends stick together through thick and thin and that is why I love this book and why it teaches a great lesson.
A fun picture book written in rhyming iambic pentameter! Kids enjoy silly words -- groovy, porkpie hat, etc. -- and the rhythmic flow of the text. But BEWARE! If you buy this book for a child in your life, you will go absolutely crazy rereading it time and time again.

[Storytime!: 4- to 6-year olds.]
