The story of Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit is a lesson to us all about reaching out. Every morning, Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit hurry past each other on their way to work and every evening they hurry past each other on their way home. Their paths cross in the town square and in the street and even in the park, but though both of them are dreadfully lonely, neither has the courage to speak.
With very simple text and gorgeous illustrations, Natalia Colombo has created a book that will challenge the reader to realize that friendships are precious and there are opportunities for friendship all around us, if only we pay attention.

NATALIA COLOMBO studied at the Architecture and Graphic Design Faculty of Buenos Aires, the city where she lives. She works for many newspapers, including La Nacion and takes part in art exhibitions. She also illustrates text books and picture books for children.From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2–Interestingly designed illustrations portray Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit, who pass one another going back and forth to work every day. The last page shows the fun things they could do together if only they'd say hello. The painterly illustrations with rough textures and brush marks are simple but expressive. A creative doodle drawing style is used in title lettering and endpapers. The short text and the large pictures make this a successful selection. Independent readers may be enticed by the illustrations and theme of friendship.Debbie Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
