What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

At the Animal Rescue Friends shelter, everyone is looking for a way to belong–kids and animals alike. From Epic! Originals, Animal Rescue Friends is a heartwarming, three-book graphic novel series filled with humor and furry friendships. Welcome to Animal Rescue Friends, where any stray can find a friendly face–furry or otherwise. This first collection of middle-grade comics includes five tales of found family: A lonely girl living in the suburbs finds happiness with a stray pit bull; a protective mama ferret and her six kits learn to trust a shelter volunteer; a shy boy stands up for himself with the help of a strong-willed bunny; a cantankerous cat helps to mend a troubled relationship; and the shelter’s unofficial mascot eventually finds a home. Perfect for animal-loving kids, this adorable comics series will inspire and uplift.
