Title: Too Tall Houses

Author: Gianna Marino

KDL Description:

E MARINO

Owl and Rabbit are good friends and neighbors atop a hill, but when Rabbit’s garden blocks Owl’s view of the forest Owl builds a higher house, which prevents sunlight from reaching Rabbit’s plants.

Amazon Description:

Good friends learn a small but important lesson

Owl and Rabbit are good friends and live in two small houses next to each other. They are perfectly happy . . . until Rabbit’s garden gets in the way of Owl’s view. So Owl builds his house a little taller. Only that blocks the sun from Rabbit’s vegetables. So Rabbit builds his house taller. And soon it’s a house-building frenzy and the two now not-so-good friends have the two tallest houses in the world!

All it takes is a gust of wind to remind them that maybe living smaller and together is a much better way to remain friends.

The creator of Meet Me at the Moon has delivered another wonderful animal fable for today’s world.
