Bunny Days

by

Bunny Days Cover

 

Staff Pick

Mr. and Mrs. Goat are very absent-minded, much to the detriment of the bunnies who are often right in the way. Luckily, Bear is always there to fix everything! Despite the trials and travails in each chapter, they all have the best ending: "Everyone is happy." I've read Bunny Days over and over (it's that kind of book) and, each time, I find another delightful detail in the pictures. Bonus: The dust jacket unfolds into a gorgeous poster!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six frolicking bunnies, two busy goats, and a very handy bear live harmoniously—though not without mishap—in this picture book charmer. What do the bunnies do when Mr. Goat drives by on his tractor and accidentally splashes them all over with mud? They hop over to Bear, who always knows just how to help—in this case, with the delicate cycle and a refreshing line dry! Two additional stories are even more surprising and giggle-worthy.

All’s well that ends well in this eye-catching, endearing treat of a book, full of funny details and exhilarating artistry.

Review:

"As in Wonder Bear, a large white bear looms large in Nyeu's latest, but this sophomore effort is a world apart. In three short and endearingly silly stories, six adorable bunnies prove to be the very definition of 'victims of circumstance,' thanks to their industrious but clueless neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Goat. The good news is that the Zen-like Bear puts things right; the comically ambivalent news is that the cure often seems as bad as the disease. Thus, when Mrs. Goat unknowingly extracts the napping bunnies out of their hole with her vacuum cleaner, Bear decides the best way to rid them of grime is to hang them from a flagpole and blast them with 'the big fan.' Nyeu's winkingly demure writing, fluidly schematic line drawings, and limited palette (each chapter is keyed to a single dominant color) make knowingly naf foils for the outrageous acts and outlandish solutions that the bunnies endure. Whereas Wonder Bear was sentimental and loosely (at best) plotted, this sardonic, tightly constructed satire offers spot-on fun for the age group, even as it gleefully sends the primly narrated animal story up the river. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
