The Frog and Toad-style duo returns in a new series of stories about celebrating loved ones, past and present. Otis and Peanut are back! Grounded in the tender, supportive friendship between a long-haired guinea pig and a naked mole rat, the second book in this junior graphic novel series explores themes of grief and remembrance with sensitivity, humor, and optimism. The three stories in this book reveal how the pair deal with the death of Pearl, Peanut’s sister and Otis’s friend. In The Cake, Peanut bakes a sweet treat for Otis using Pearl’s recipe and teaches him that there’s always a good reason to eat cake-even if it’s for no reason at all! In The Dream, Peanut is missing his sister, but finds a way to keep her memory close. And in The Collection, the two friends celebrate old memories, and make some new ones. Author Naseem Hrab brings wit and lightness to challenging subject matter. The profound lessons she shares about missing someone you love will resonate with young readers. Poignant, funny, and sweeter than a slice of Pearl’s Strawberry Layer Cake, Otis & Peanut: Forever and Ever is a treat to be enjoyed at any time.
