Little Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earthby Kate Klise
Synopses & Reviews
"Charmingly off-kilter, with emotions that are spot-on." —Publishers Weekly
Little Rabbit hears the drums. He watches the performers parade by. He really wants to go to the circus! But his mother says he may go only after he cleans his disastrously messy playroom. Little Rabbit tries, but it's no use. There's only one thing to do: sneak out. And he now has an act for the circus: Behold! The Meanest Mother on Earth! She has two heads. And green teeth. She's terrifying!
Well, Mother Rabbit is tough . . . but only because she loves her child. Plus, she has an ingenious plan on how to get the Messiest Room on Earth tidy!
"Chimerical details abound in this strong follow-up to Little Rabbit and the Night Mare. Even though he wants to see the circus, Little Rabbit's mother directs him to first clean his out-of-control playroom, shown complete with framed bug specimens, assorted toys, and other creations. Sneaking out of his window, Little Rabbit decides to join the circus. His claim to fame: he has the 'Meanest Mother on Earth.' Selling tickets, he promises: 'She has two heads. And green teeth!' But when the audience is less-than-wowed by his mean mother, she has the last laugh (and he has a change of heart). Charmingly off-kilter, with emotions that are spot on. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
What does Little Rabbit do when his mother insists he clean his playroom? Why, run away and join the circus, of course!
Little Rabbit hears the drums and watches performers parade by. He really wants to go to the circus! His mother says he may go, but only after he cleans his playroom. Little Rabbit tries, but it’s no use. There’s only one thing to do: Join the circus and sell one hundred tickets to see the Meanest Mother on Earth! She’s terrifying! She’s not fair!
Mother Rabbit is tough, but only because she loves her Little Rabbit. He starts to understand this at the last sleepy moment, as he snuggles up under a homemade circus tent in his now clean playroom.
