Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A triumphant and endearing tale to tickle the smallest listeners.

A very small bunny wants to join the circus and is not put off by a sign reading “Small Animals Need Not Apply.” Though he is too small to wipe his nose or tie his shoes or walk far without a rest, he is not too small to make a BIG impression on the lion, the orangutan, and the other big animals of this circus troupe. This buoyant little tale is at turns funny, endearing, clever—and just right for the smallest child in any family. The brief text and expressive illustrations are great fun to share with a preschooler.

Review:

On the endpapers of this amiable ode to determination, an itinerant rabbit eyes a circus poster sporting the words "Jobs Available." Cut to the big top, where little rabbit, having chosen to ignore the fine print ("small animals need not apply"), finds himself surrounded by a bevy of large and fearsome creatures. Undaunted, he bravely extracts an umbrella, a pair of oversize shoes and a clown nose... Washington Post Book Review (read the entire Washington Post review)

Synopsis:

A very small bunny wants to join the circus. Though he is too small to wipe his nose or tie his shoes, he is not too small to make a big impression. At turns funny and clever, this buoyant tale is just right for the smallest child. Full color.

About the Author
