Fox and Rabbit are cooking up something very special for Sparrow’s birthday! Sparrow loves food, so Fox and Rabbit team up with Owl to create the world’s biggest pizza. But since they don't have the world's biggest oven, they don’t know how to cook it.
Fox and Rabbit decide to ask for help from Dragon. They’ve never met Dragon (who hopefully likes to eat pizza, not foxes or rabbits . . .), so they find their courage together. Dragon wants to help but has never eaten pizza. In fact, Dragon has never had a friend or been to a birthday party before, either. It’s up to Fox and Rabbit to change all that!
This third outing in the Fox & Rabbit series from Beth Ferry and Gergely Dudás celebrates the ways in which differences can bring friends together.

With equal parts creativity, determination, and humor, Marsha sets out to attract as many friends as she can for her birthday bash—what could possibly go wrong?
In this hilarious celebration of birthdays, friendship, and ingenuity, Beth Ferry and Lorena Alvarez show readers that the best way to attract friends is to simply be yourself.
Fox and Rabbit are very best buddies. They do everything together. Good things like getting ice cream and not-so-good things like getting bad haircuts. But when they meet a new friend, Owl, Fox isn’t so sure if there’s enough friendship to go around.
Soon enough, Fox learns that it’s easy to be friends with Rabbit and Owl. They have lots of fun exploring the depths of Owl's BIG imagination. Together, Fox and Rabbit and Owl sail the high seas, get swallowed by a whale, defeat evil woodchucks, and more—all from the comfort of the playground.
Featuring the same funny text and fresh art as Book 1, the second book in the Fox & Rabbit series will delight old fans and seamlessly welcome new ones!
