Little Rabbit Foo Foo is an absolute little shit. Riding through the forest on his red motorbike, hitting all the inhabitants on the head with a red mallet, being the most anti-social Leporidae since Peter 'Quick Fingers' Rabbit and his Sylvilagus cronies, he doesn't care who gets hurt and even the Good Fairy can't psycho-analyse any kind of understanding.

My favourite book as a child, it is a wonderfully illustrated and splendidly rhyming tale of a naughty rabbit being a nuisance. I'm fairly cer

This book is a cheeky, fun short book which is simple to read. A naughty little rabbit called 'Rabbit Foo Foo' rides through the forest annoying all the other animals; from worms to tigers. He enjoys bopping them on the head with a mallet and rides away on his bike giggling at his antics.

A fairy comes down and warns Rabbit Foo Foo to stop bopping the animals over the head and gives him three chances to stop, warning him that she will turn him into a 'goonie' if he carries on. Little Rabbit Foo

Little rabbit foo foo. This was a book about a little rabbit that loved to cause mischief, he rode through the forest and bopped innocent animals on the head. That is until, a good fairy came down and told little rabbit that he had three chances to change, although, this didn't happen and he continued to bop animals on the head.

Holy cow I love this book. When I was young I learned how to read it and would read it over and over again to see how fast I can go. I still remember reading it fast and with tons of excitement. When I read the book I kind of sang it. This book can be a great book to have in a class, kids and sing it like I did. We can read it as a class or see who can read it the fastest. This is for sure going to be in my future class room. Now that I think about it I think its at home on my childhood book she ...more

This book is a retelling of the fairy tale that everyone (except my husband evidently) knows from their childhood. My husband picked this book out for the boy when we were in a thrift store and thought it was adorable. This is when I found out that he had no idea about the song and I was shocked.

Anyway, the boy loved this book a lot. The story is of course where Little Rabbit Foo Foo is going through the forest and picking up various animals and such and bopping them on the head. He gets three

This book is a hoot. Based upon the song "Little Bunny Foo Foo" that I sang to my sons when they were little, it takes the story one step further and sillier.

Rabbit Foo Foo is not a friendly fellow and he can't say he wasn't warned to knock off bopping other creatures in the head. In the end he gets his just desserts.

The story is cute and the illustrations spot on. My favorite illustration is the poor little wiggly worms with bumps on their little worm heads.

This book has always been a childhood favorite for me. The illustrations are captivating and detailed, making the text and pictures go hand in hand. Children will especially enjoy and remember this book because it has rhythm and melody with a strong moral lesson embedded within. It teaches kids to respect your elders and people around you through personifying different forest animals. It also extends and flourishes the imaginations of readers.
Wonderful, cheeky, modern retelling of Little Bunny Foo Foo song. Rabbit Foo Foo rides through the forest on a motorcycle hitting the creatures that live there with a wooden hammer! Loved it, so did my son. I am trying to pass on my love of books to my children and am always impressed when one has my boy, who can't sit still for more then a second, shouting, "Read it again! "

This is a book that a lot of children have probably heard a version of it. My husband taught my kids a similar version of this story. It has repetition and can be sang as if it is a song. You can put rhythm with it and the children will be more likely to remember it. I love how the book ends, "The moral of the story: Hare today, goon tomorrow."

my number one favorite book as a child, i felt sorry for foo foo for being turned into a goonie.
now i realise may be a bit violent as he hits people with a wooden hammer or mallet, whilst riding a motor bike but i really loved it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Love to read it, my son (now 3) loves to hear it. Over and over again. He can probably relate to the rabbit with the bad attitude. :)

Little rabbit foo foo is a wonderfully devilish tale, about a mean bunny, and his faithful fairy god mother. This story has a lovely rhythm to it and can be read and even sung, to enhance children's enjoyment and make it more memorable. It's a lovely story to get involved in discussion about how to treat other people, and why it is important to be kind. The illustrations are magical, and the story calls upon goblins and even tigers!

This story can be used in class with younger children to discus

This book is pure genius, it will have the whole class joining in as the fairy warns Little Rabbit Foo Foo of the consequences of terrorising the other woodland animals and creatures. The illustrations are fantastic, and evoke a giggle as the children see Foo Foo blasting round on his motorbike - mallet in hand. On a serious note the story does reinforce the need for children to be aware of consequences, but it is light hearted and fun to read to a class. I read this to a year 1 class at the end ...more

I loved this book as a kid. It has a lot of repetition for beginning readers.

This is a brilliant book with charming animation . It offers a whole new storytelling experience. The best thing about this book is that it can be sung to the children. The children will love it. Little Rabbit Foo Foo is a bit of a bully to the wiggly worms, tigers, and goblins that live in the forest with him. He gets three chances to behave himself by the Good Fairy. He loses his three chances and gets turned into a Goonie. I would recommend this book for early years and KS1. This book can be ...more

Little Rabbit Foo Foo is a naughty bunny riding his motorcycle like mad and, hitting the other animals for fun. You bet: the good fairy is not pleased at all!! What a great picture book! The moral is easy to understand and, the pictures are as funny as hell -the faces of the poor Rabbit's victims, the very crossed fairy, the annoyed little bunny and, the myriad of details hidden here and there... The whole is a fantastic and hilarious reading time where, even grown ups will laugh their head off. ...more
