When Pepper gives her friend Frannie a ride to a skateboarding festival, confident Frannie convinces cautious Pepper to give skateboarding a try, but Pepper's attempts are not all smooth sailing. Luckily, she has a supportive and enthusiastic friend to cheer her on and help her realize her potential. After all, if she can skateboard down the forest trail, there's nothing she can't do!
Sweet, lively illustrations complement this empowering tale about learning to fall and to get back up again. This story is a relatable look at the ups and downs of trying something new, with an encouraging message about the importance of persevering.
"Pepper the rabbit is 'practical and prepared, and follows the rules.' Frannie, her friend, is “'fancy and free, and follows her own path'.... Despite her scatterbrained temperament, Frannie proves a gifted teacher, encouraging Pepper to persist through tumbles ('TRY! TRY... TRY!'), captured by Odell in lively vignettes.... [T]he triumph Pepper expresses registers as completely genuine. 'If I can do this,' she says, surveying the forest skateboard path the two have just conquered, 'I can do anything!'" — Publishers Weekly
