Road Trip with Rabbit and Squash
Paperback, 48 Pages
Prints in 3-5 business days
Cookies. Windmills. Motel shower caps. A sticky steering wheel. These things are the stuff of road trips. Well, this one anyway. The colorful, crunchy-like-a-cookie, richly textured, highly sought-after illustration that you've seen in the gallery is featured in this odd journey of a book. It's the story of two friends on a road trip. Plus a butternut squash with an impeccable sense of direction. What? Stop looking at me. I didn't make this up, it is absolutely true. I suppose you could close your eyes and imagine what the story and the pictures might be like. If you go that route, I recommend eating an entire bag of cookies and consuming copious amounts of chai tea before you start. Anyway, that's what I did. Or, you could get the book. Seeing as how I already thunk it all up for you.

Jan 9, 2010Rabbit & Bear's cross-country adventure is illustrated with great graphics that chronicle the story and spark the reader's imagination. It's a kid-friendly animal adventure that has enough humor and life lessons to make it easy for adults to enjoy it. As if that's not enough of a treat for readers, there's even a delicious recipe at the end for (vegan-friendly!) chocolate chip cookies that you can make together, just like Bear. Be sure to master the "cookie math" before you share them, though... This is one of those books that you'll buy for your kids, fall in love with, and then secretly hope that they'll pick it every night for their bedtime story. I'm hoping for a sequel, too!
Dec 22, 2009This book is a positive delight for adults and kids alike. First of all, I found the art, with its muted tones and unusually texture, both soothing and gorgeous. I eventually found out that the author/artist got the unusual texture by taking a piece of brown Kraft paper and altering it digitally, which is amazing enough, but that doesn't explain the sheer light-handed fun with which he must have gone about deciding what to illustrate, and how. Second, the story's great. It's simple -- two friends, Rabbit and Bear, take a road trip -- but it's also about friendship, about enjoying the journey (even when you run out of cookies), and the unexpected delights that you find along the way. My favorite bit (and there's stiff competition) is when a butternut squash joins Bear and Rabbit on their journey to the Pacific Ocean: "The squash didn't have a ride, Rabbit explained, but he could give directions. Bear couldn't turn is back on a squash. Especially a squash with a plan."... More > Priceless.< Less
Aug 17, 2007"Love it! " I thought the Squash was an adorable twist to the story. I love the recipe in there too! Illustrations are great, and very fitting to the story!! Text is interesting and worked well with the story. The story itself, a great little adventure!! Waiting to see where they go next! Congrats.. Lucy Staples, Author/Illustrator
Mar 20, 2007"Road Trip" What a fantastic find! Cuddly, cute protagonists have a big adventure by way of a cross country road trip. The story is intended for children, but Bear and Rabbit have distinct personalities, and their interaction made me think a lot about the big career change I'm undertaking. I can't wait for their next adventure. Recommended for all ages; worth reading over and over again.
