The strip is published around the world, its international syndication in 150 papers and more meaning that it gains a wide audience.

The first book was made into a full length feature film by DreamWorks Animation. The animated film was a qualified hit, and its 2006 release earned it over $336 million at the box office.

Over The Hedge is an artistic collaboration between Michael Fry and T. Lewis. Their combined artistic talents have made this children’s book a fun read that you won’t be able to put down! Whether you’re a young reader that wants something entertaining to pick up or a parent that wants to have new books to check out with their kids that are colorful and fun, check this debut out and then see the film based on this work!

Suburban living is viewed from an entirely new perspective in this skewed illustrated story from Fry and Lewis. This story is told through the point of view of all the animals that live in the area and were there first before humans decided to come in and ruin everything.

A funny and skewed take on suburban life of human beings, this comic strip is sure to warm your heart as you meet the mischievous critters that live in this area. There is a raccoon named R.J., who is constantly up to no good. Then there is his best friend Verne, who is a turtle known for being sensitive and in touch with his feelings.

The two of them are teaming up to take on the people and try to save the wooded home that they love. If they can’t succeed, they’re going to have to pack up and leave. It’s that simple. R.J. and Verne are desperate to protect their home from the intrusions of suburbia. But in the process, they may just end up getting distracted by all of the new features around them.

Wide screen televisions, discarded containers full of fast food to eat, and messing with the homeowners association are all tempting distractions for the animal friends. Can the pair stay focused, or will they get too enamored by the perks of suburban living? Pick up this book to find out!

If you loved the first book then go ahead and check out the sequel, Over the Hedge II! When we first met a raccoon and turtle in the debut work, it was tough not to fall in love. Now these creatures are back in a fun new adventure from Fry and T. Lewis.

Humans living in suburban homes seem to value their safety and security. They have no idea that a raccoon and Verne the turtle are doing everything they can to get rid of them– even if they are enjoying the perks of having humans in the neighborhood.

The animal best friends didn’t like the idea of people being around at first, but they soon started to adapt. They love hanging out in the hot tubs, eating their discarded food, or hanging out on their patio furniture. The two of them thought that they’d have to defend their turf, but the pleasure of having feasts and watching television is just proving too alluring.

R.J. and Verne are even starting to find that they’re having fun using computers. Verne even gets to email out several million copies of his recipe for potato chip and Spam pie and nearly breaks the Internet. When they steal a Harley motorcycle from their neighbor Nate, have they gone too far? Pick up a copy of this sequel and read to the end to find out!
