The creator of ZELDA AND IVY illustrates the fine art of being a good friend -- and still being yourself-in an engaging, amusing tale about appreciating differences.

Frank likes the quiet life -- an afternoon sitting in his favorite armchair and playing the ukulele suits him just fine. Izzy, on the other hand, craves an adventure, as you might expect of a rabbit whose grandma sailed the seven seas with a parrot on her shoulder (well, maybe not the parrot part). It's no surprise that when Izzy suggests they sail to Crescent Island and camp out overnight, Frank is a tiny bit hesitant. But when Izzy agrees to tow along most of Frank's earthly possessions -- and Frank patches up an unexpected mishap on Izzy's part -- they both agree that odd couples can make great companions for sharing a wonderful summer's day.
