The Rescue Rabbits Blog Tour (review and giveaway)


The Rescue Rabbits 

By Eric Seltzer 

Illustrated by Roland Garrigue 


Two Lions 

The four zany Rescue Rabbits invite you to race along with them as they save their fellow animal friends both big and small. From limping elephants to seasick kangaroos, it seems there is no problem they can’t handle. But when the Rescue Rabbits meet a rhino prince with a very unique problem, they will have to put their heads together (in a Rescue Rabbits huddle, of course!) and find a special solution in order to save the day. And that’s just what they will do, because they are…THE RESCUE RABBITS! 



“Readers will see in these pages a gentle spoof of cartoons and blockbusters that include endless product tie-ins, but the story also offers an amusing tribute to competency-themed pretend play.” —Publishers Weekly 


Ace, Chip, Dot, and Spot are the four zany members of The Rescue Rabbits. The Rescue Rabbits set out every day, with their zany gadgets and gizmos, to rescue critters of all sizes...but one day they encounter a rhino sized problem that may prove tricky. What will The Rescue Rabbits do?! 


Eric Seltzer’s The Rescue Rabbits is a sweet, silly tale full of delightful antics and engaging animal characters. Little readers will be charmed by The Rescue Rabbits’ adventurous missions, their neat gadgets and gear, their infectious enthusiasm, and their can-do attitude. The Rescue Rabbits will inspire and encourage readers with their effective teamwork and thoughtful problem solving. And Roland Garrigue brings all The Rescue Rabbits’ adventures to life with boldly colored and amusingly lively jungle scenes. 


With cute storytelling, captivating pictures, and four irresistibly charming rabbits, The Rescue Rabbits is perfect for fans of Paw Patrol and Dora The Explorer.
