K-Gr 2-Felines Ollie and Moon are best friends. Moon likes to play games she's familiar with, but Ollie enjoys trying new things. In a game of dare, he challenges her to "wear a dozen leis all at once!" and she dares him to stand at the side of the road wearing a sign that says, "Honk If I'm Cute!" Ollie is the more enthusiastic of the pair and he never loses heart; he even helps Moon complete her final dare when he realizes that she is afraid to bodysurf in the ocean. The story is told in comic-book format with large panels and dialogue bubbles. The type is easy to read and surrounded by plenty of white space. The boldly colored artwork combines illustration and photographs. This book could serve as an introduction to comic books or simply as a fun alternative to traditional beginning readers.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GAα(c) Copyright 2013.

Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 2013:
"This engaging beginning reader uses comic-book conventions and a Hawaiian setting to invite emergent readers into the story of odd-couple friends Ollie and Moon...The merits of this title will have new readers saying mahalo
for a joyful, exuberant friendship story."
