Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny by Robert Broder and illustrated by Bryan Langdo was released last week.
Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny are roommates; and sometimes roommates do not get along. This funny story, written by RGP's own Robert Broder, will make you laugh out loud! And Bryan Langdo's lovely watercolor illustrations bring these three characters, and more, to life!
Selfie the Elfie by Savage Steve Holland and illustrated by Andrea Tripke will be released October 1.
This is RGP's first holiday book! It is a truly magical picture book to round out the year. Santa’s workshop is a very busy place-even for Sophie, who is in charge of tying bows on every present. But when she starts taking selfies with her handy-dandy camera phone, everyone in the workshop easily gets distracted…until Santa’s Big Night Delivery Suit goes missing! Can the reader find the trail to Santa’s suit? Will Sophie’s selfies save the day?
Find these two great stories along with all of our other titles wherever books are sold!
Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny is on sale today! Available wherever books are sold!
We are thrilled to share our newest release with you. This funny and sweet book will have both children and the adults in their lives laughing out loud! Written by our own Robert Broder and illustrated by RGP favorite Bryan Langdo, Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny came from the idea that being a little odd doesn't always mean you're the odd one out!
About the Book
Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny are roommates. But sometimes roommates don’t get along.
Rabbit and Hare finally have enough of Bunny’s eccentric behavior and ask him to move out. But they soon realize a good roommate is hard to find. And when Bunny moves back in with his parents, Bunny realizes being more aware of how his actions affect others might not be the worst thing he could do.
About the Author & Illustrator
Robert Broder is the author of the picture book Paul and His Ukulele illustrated by Jenn Kocsmiersky. He has been known to play his banjo-ukulele obnoxiously loud, which does not make for a good roommate. However, his wife, daughter, dog, two cats, and fish think it’s just fine (at least that’s what they tell him).
About the Illustrator
Bryan Langdo is the illustrator of over thirty books for children, including Mr. Tanner by Harry Chapin and Salad Pie by Wendy BooydeGraaff. He is also a writer and editor. When he’s not in his art studio, he’s spending time with his favorite roommates: his wife, two kids, three cats, and a dog.
From Midwest Book Reviews, May 15, 2019:
"Rabbit, Hare, and Bunny" by author Robert Broader and illustrator Bryan Langdo will have special appeal for young readers ages 5-7 -- and prove to be a welcome and enduringly popular addition to family, elementary school, and community library collections.
From Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2019:
Their appearances and personalities are distinct and amusing in Langdo’s bright ink-and-watercolor illustrations, complementing and enhancing the text with detailed vignettes of the action. Broder keeps the tone light in this gentle lesson in tolerance, consideration, and getting along. A sweet tale.
