When Little Owl Met Little Rabbit (Hardcover)
A sweet and gorgeously illustrated tale about two baby critters who want more than anything to be friends but are separated by their different lifestyles. Even though they live in the same tree, Little Rabbit sleeps at night, and Little Owl sleeps during the day, making it nearly impossible for them to play together. On one fateful night, a shooting star and a coveted wish could change everything for these two unlikely friends and solve their shared problem! Wechterowicz teaches us that lasting friendships can grow no matter what obstacles stand in the way and to never give up hope on those precious to you!
