Rabbit and Owl lived in two small houses on top of a hill. They were good neighbors and good friends until one day…

Why you should read it:


The illustrations in this book are absolutely stunning! Ms. Marino puts vibrant detail into her artwork and her characters seem to leap off the page. TOO TALL HOUSES is a story about two friends with very different personalities. Rabbit enjoys growing vegetables in his garden while Owl loves to gaze at the forest just beyond their little houses. But one day Rabbit’s eagerness to have plenty to eat prevents Owl from enjoying the view and a contest begins to see who can outdo the other. It will take a little push from Mother Nature to make the two friends realize that there are more important things in life than who has the tallest house on the hill.
