Ribbit Rabbit by Candace Ryan and Mike Lowery (Bloomsbury, £5.99)
Cute double act Ribbit (the frog) and Rabbit (the, er, rabbit) are ever the very best of friends – and oft times the very worst of enemies. With a playful text reminiscent of the sing-song tongue-twisters of good ol’ Dr Seuss, this is a lively graphic treat (with some striking typography that lends to the light comic touch) that focuses on the often turbulent nature of childhood friendships. With two protagonists who are playing happily one minute, and sulking and pouting the next, it’s a scenario that will strike an all-too-familiar chord with children and parents alike. Thankfully, it all ends happily!
