Booklist - 04/01/2017 Squirrel moves to a new tree house and, hoping to find a friend, looks around for other animals. But where are they? She visits the playground, rows a boat, and even has a picnic, but she sees no one. Meanwhile, Rabbit moves into a new burrow. Looking for company, he sits at a café table, plays golf, and fills his water buckets beside a bridge. Where is everyone? Zooming along later, with Squirrel on her skateboard and Rabbit in roller skates, they bump into each other (literally) and become fast friends. The eye-catching illustrations, linocut prints with digital elements, feature strong lines and patterns as well as vibrant color combinations. Many pictures focus on either the blue squirrel or the red rabbit, while the other is clearly visible in the background, for observant kids to find; readers will enjoy telling the two characters what they’re missing. In the illustrations, each animal is accompanied by a strange little critter (picture a worm with antennas and arms) that offers encouragement. Good fun for young children. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
