Synopses & Reviews
In this companion to Nest and Fetch Hurley uses a string of verbs one per spread to highlight the actions of a family of cottontail rabbits over the course of one day. Once again the ultra limited text lets Hurley’s crisp digital illustrations do the talking—a morning of playing in (and nibbling on) the grass turns frightening as a hawk appears overhead (“freeze”) quickly followed by a fox (“warn” “run”). The rabbits escape to an underground burrow (“hide”) returning to their tree hollow home safe and sound after waiting out a rainstorm. An author’s note offers enlightening details about the habits of cottontails. Ages 3–7. Agent: Laurie Abkemeier DeFiore and Company. (Jan.) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
