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.

Kvasnosky (Zelda and Ivy ) depicts Izzy as the intrepid type who provides spontaneous fun, and Frank as the practical fellow (and a bit of a worrywart) who averts disaster and winds up enjoying himself.
