Too Tall Houses by Gianna Marino

Uh oh!  Previously good neighbors Rabbit and Owl are in a housing dispute!  Whose plants are blocking whose view?  Whose house is taller?  Will the wind blow both houses over before anybody finds out??

Watching Rabbit and Owl build increasingly ridiculous towers into the sky is great fun in Gianna Marino’s fable about getting along and compromising.  The art is rustic and colorful, with the oranges and browns of a Thanksgiving cornucopia, and the story has a great message.  Pick up a copy to see how Rabbit and Owl work it out!
