The perfect picture book for parents in search of a modern day take on Russell Hoban's A Bargain for Frances combined with the kid-friendly graphic style of Mo Willem's Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

When Simon the Super Rabbit takes his cars over to his friend Ferdinand's to play, the two little rabbits decide to make a trade—all three of Simon's cars for Ferdinand's "extraordinary" red car. But as soon as Simon plays with his new toy, CRACK! it breaks! Did Ferdinand play a trick on him? Simon has an idea . . . a terrible, horrible, wonderful idea! But will Ferdinand fall for Simon's trick and not only return his three cars, but also discover Simon's—gross!—surprise? Stephanie Blake—author-illustrator of I Don't Want to Go to School!—has spun a true-to-life tale of friendship with laugh-out-loud results.
