Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a delightful children's book This book deserves the Caldecott Medal for the best illustrations in a children's book. The illustrations really drive the plot of this novel. There isn't a lot of words, but the simple plot tells a story that many children need to hear: having a friend means you sometimes need to accept their limitations or shortcomings, because everyone has them. Rabbit is not malicious or spiteful, but as Mouse accurately says, "everywhere he goes, trouble follows". In essence, Rabbit represents every little boy who ever lived, as he tends to get in trouble due to the exuberence of youth. The illustrations are quite funny as well, and will certainly engage a young reader, particularly if this book is read to them. I would highly recommend this book for any child 8 years old or younger.

Editorial Reviews

This is a very simple book designed for younger ages. It's a fast reading book, but can help start a great discussion in giving the benefit of the doubt, in unconditional love, and in being a faithful friend.

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
