Animal lovers have a new friend with the second title in the ANIMAL RESCUE FRIENDS graphic novel series. FRIENDS FUR-EVER can be enjoyed without having read the first book.

The kids are starting a new school year and it’s time to sign up for clubs. They choose to create their own and give it a long name: Oakville Elementrary School’s Club for Animal Appreciation, Education, and Rehabilitation.

Everyone in the club is motivated to create impactful activities despite their faculty advisor, Mrs. Wen, not sharing in their love of animals. Together they grow and learn that animals can truly help people when they are given a chance.

The illustrations are colorful and bold while complementing the story in a perfect pairing. You’ll meet a cast of interesting animals like Truffles the piglet, a horse named Chestnut, and Cocoa the bunny to name a few. The 150 plus pages will keep you smiling and provide heartwarming moments. A great gift for the animal enthusiast in your home.
