With rhyming text and word play, the author tells the story of two best friends, Bunny and Frog. Although they enjoy spending time together doing their favorite things--fighting monsters and eating peanut butter sandwiches--sometimes they don't get along. As happens sometimes, their small disagreements escalate to big disagreements, and they both end up sulking in their respective corners, alone, until they remember that their friendship means more than whatever they are disagreeing about. Not only does this book have a great message about compromise, but it also has appealing illustrations created with pencil, screen printing, and print gouache and then finished digitally. Part of the attraction for me was how in the illustrations the tiny wind-up robot toy they play with also ends up being the very thing they end up fighting over. There is some clunky text when they are ripping and wrapping paper around the toy, but overall, this one is fun to read aloud.
