"Rabbit and owl are neighbors and friends, but rabbit loves the sun on his garden and owl loves the moonlight view of the faraway land. When owl complains to rabbit that he can't see through the overgrown plants, rabbit is unsympathetic. Owl's solution is to build his house taller. That will not do for rabbit who builds his house taller too. And they keep at it, stealing the sky until they lose everything they thought they cared about.

My first read through with my 4 yr old was less than stellar. I wasn't used to such an obvious social message. When I read Yertle the Turtle or The Lorax, I expect my conscience to wake up a bit. The second time through sealed the deal. I love this book. The illustrations are beyond cute. The message is a great one, listen, care, compromise.

" The rivalry between these 2 friends gets a bit out of hand... " said.

" This is a story about two friends, Owl and Rabbit, who compete for the tallest house. I liked the idea of the story, but wasn't crazy about the book itself. " said.

" Did not ultimately use. Fun but ages 5+ " said.

" Funny with great illustrations. Rounded out at the end with a nice message. All around good stuff. " said.

" A story about a friendship turned rivalry. Rabbit and Owl are competitive for the best house. " said.

" Inventive. Adorable. Magnetic. This delightful tale snatches you up, pulling you in by the scruff of your neck, and doesn't let up until the very last sentence. Not to mention, these illustrations are divine. " said.

" Owl and Rabbit are best of friends until Rabbit's crops grow too tall, so Owl can't see the forest. Then Owl builds his house taller (to see the forest) and blocks the sun from Rabbit's crops.This sets off a vicious cycle where they each build taller until their houses come crashing down.Maybe a good intro to problem solving/design thinking? Or a way to explore how not to escalate issues? " said.
