Summary
This book is full of wonderful WORDS and beautiful PICTURES! And it's EXCITING! And it's FUNNY! It might be the BEST BOOK EVER--if we could decide whose book it is. Redd and Bloo explore the way a book is made and accidentally build a friendship, too, in this tale told only in dialogue. Travis Foster and Ethan Long offer a hilarious story about the joy of reading, which brings people together in unexpected ways, proving that each book truly belongs to . . . the people who love it.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Is a book something worth fighting over? This jaunty tale of rivalry, possessiveness, cooperation, and friendship gives a hearty Absolutely! to this question. It centers on one green book that two creatures, hairy Redd and bunny-like Bloo, each claims as his own. Redd, who is reading the green book at the story's beginning, refuses to part with it when Bloo asserts the book actually belongs to him. A heated argument ensues, giving Bookworm the chance to snatch the book and slither away with it to her cozy reading hole. Now, Redd and Bloo join forces to recover the book, devising a crafty plan to tempt Bookworm back out of her hole. Plain white backgrounds help young readers stay focused, and the simple digital illustrations explode with color and action. Supported by Redd and Bloo's cartoonish expressions and gestures, the story is delivered solely in cartoon-bubble dialogue, which moves from antagonism to cooperation to friendship and sharing. This comedic tug-of-war also conveys the value of books, along with some insight into how books are made.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bloo, a blue rabbit (drawn by Long), catches Redd, a shaggy red monster (drawn by Foster), reading Bloo's book. A barrage of accusations and denials ensues, but readers will surmise that Redd is indeed trying to pull a fast one on Bloo. Their tussling gives a third character, Bookworm, the opportunity to swipe the book for herself. Now united, Bloo and Red cook up a plot to trap Bookworm by creating a decoy book ("The illustrations will make her eyes explode!" says Bloo), which turns out to be as much fun as reading. The crisp animation-style cartooning, punctuated with photographic objects, has a freewheeling verve that lifts the story beyond an exercise in gainsaying. But what makes it truly touching is the love that Boo, Redd, and Earthworm have for the book-not just as a transporter of imaginations but as a physical object. As the larcenous Redd notes: "I cannot part with my green book. It has a hard cover, a nice spine, the pages turn from right to left... and, if you are adventurous, from left to right." Ages 3-5.
