Step into Reading comic readers feature dialogue in word balloons. Graphic, paneled layouts introduce emergent readers to the joy of comics. Set in Hawaii, this Step 3 Ollie & Moon story has an easy-to-follow plot about trying new things, and what it means to be a best friend. Diane Kredensor's energetic illustrations sit atop full-color photos, much like in Mo Willem's Knuffle Bunny books.

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."
