“Wally the rabbit and Mae the bear couldn't be more different. Wally is up early, neat, and industrious. Mae likes to sleep late and have fun. What happens when they live together will make readers laugh with delight. Beautiful illustrations add to this story of an unlikely friendship.”
— Barbara Katz, Harry W. Schwartz Bookshop, Mequon, WI

A fastidious rabbit and a slovenly bear make a new Odd Couple on the NorthSouth list. Exceptionally endearing art and a gorgeous large format add to the fun. This books should appeal to fans of other classic tales of friendship like Frog & Toad or Ernest & Celestine.Every morning Wally sprang out of bed at 6 oclock sharp, ate two carrots while he read the paper, washed the dishes, swept the floors, dusted the furniture, and watered the geranium.
