It's Only Ink! A Good Day For Abbey
It's Only Ink!
A Good Day For Abbey
Nobody likes to feel sad and alone, and Abbey the kitten is no exception. When Rip and his little sister Jesse befriend Abbey she learns that friends cone in all sizes - and species. The three friends eat popcorn together, tell silly jokes, play in the garden, and get to know each other better. When Abbey takes Rip and Jesse on a ride they meet a new and charismatic friend named Euripides (a frog). He is full of interesting tales and whimsical songs.
A GOOD DAY FOR ABBEY is based on the magical art and heartwarming stories from the children's book "Rip Squeak and His Friends" illustrated by Leonard Filgate and written by Susan Yost-Filgate.
The vivid illustrations bring Abbey, Rip, Jesse and Euripides to life. Children of all ages will enjoy this quick, yet inspirational story about the importance of friends.
A GOOD DAY FOR ABBEY would make a wonderful addition to any home or school library and will surely become a fast family favorite.
