This book is hilarious!!!! I would not read it to my class but I would definately read it to my own children. This book made me and my boyfriend laugh so hard we had tears streaming down our cheeks by the end of it. WARNING: not a book for people who do not have a sense of dumb humor! :)

The Dumb Bunnies is the perfect book for a typical immature kid whose favorite jokes revolve around the words "toilet" and "underwear." The Dumb Bunnies are a family of clueless rabbits who might remind you of a certain family of bears. When they go to town to let their porridge cool off, they take their bikes, which are strapped on top of their car. "'Can I drive the car?" asked Baby Bunny. "'You don't know how to drive," said Poppa Bunny. 'You'd get us all killed.' "'Aw, please?' asked Baby Bu ...more

The Dumb Bunnies makes fun of a couple different fairy tale stories. Not only does the text play on words, but the illustrations play a big part in the humor given in the book. The text changes from page to page. Some pages its at the bottom with borders around the illustrations and others the text is wrapped into the illustrations. Most of the illustrations are symmetrical to the text, but allows the reader to visualize the humor from the text. The colors also add to the playfulness in the book ...more

Recommends it for: even the most curmudgeonly
Some children’s books are a delight for children but merely OK for the parents who read them. (Pat the Bunny and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, I’m talking about you.) Some are enjoyable but not magical (e.g., Goodnight Moon and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle). But some are so hilarious that both parents and children look forward to reading the book again and again and again. That is The Dumb Bunnies, a book so funny that even curmudgeonly child-haters of the W.B. Fields variety will love it.

The Dumb Bunnies, illustrated and written by Dav Pilkey, offers a hilarious tale of a Momma Bunny, Poppa Bunny and Baby Bunny. Each member of the family is dumber than the next and showcases literal meanings along with opposites to tell their tale. For instance, when Momma Bunny suggests they take their bikes to town for the exercise, everyone agrees. However, instead of riding their bikes, they place them on top of their car and drive to town. The humor is not for everyone and can become quite ...more

The Dumb Bunnies is a comic relief picture book for children. It is a parody of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears. The Dumb Bunnies have a picnic in the car wash, ice skate inside the lake instead of on top of it, and go into town on their bikes for exercise (a.k.a., putting the bikes on top of the car when they head into town). While they're out, "Little Red Goldilocks" as she is named, breaks into the Dumb Bunnies' house and she sleeps in the porridge, eats the bed, and uses Baby Bunny's pimple ...more

Silly, Silly, Silly! I couldn't help but chuckle at a few parts of the story. I can say that the Dumb Bunnies are much loved by children, but not so loved by adults. I think it would be interesting to compare the aspects of fairy tales to the Dumb Bunnies. I like the authors subtle silly additions to the story within the illustrations. I love the books in the library "The house the jack build" and "The condo that jack subletted". The about the author states that Dave Pilkey lives with his pet rh ...more

Ever wonder about what not to do? Just read The Dumb Bunnies. This fairly dumb bunny family that are silly and do just about the dumbest things. Papa, Mama and Baby do the wackiest things you have ever heard of. When their porridge is too hot, they put it in the microwave to warm up. They do so many things backwards and opposite of what we normally do. Read about dumb bunnies doing ever so silly things and before you know it you’ll want to read the whole collection.
I don't like to censor the books the children pick out of the library but when I saw this one in the pile, I was ready to sneak it into the return bag without ever reading it. I'm glad I resisted. It is just the right balance between silly and goofy and parody and funny without actually really being offensive. Then again, maybe it is just we haven't been reading many picture books lately so it was the change of pace and nostalgia that got me ;-)
The Dumb Bunnies by Sue Denim is in my own category. This book is about three bunnies that are making fun of a whole bunch of other kid stories. I love this book because it is funny. I was laughing at the weird things that they did. If I was to teach this book, I would want to look at the words that are used in this story. They are simple, but super funny. It was well written and I really enjoy reading it.

This is a "dumb" story and my boys (ages 5 & 9) found it hilarious! However, we don't use the word 'dumb' in our house so we replaced it with 'silly'. They loved pointing out all the things that were wrong in the pictures. It references "The Three Little Bears". An example of what they do, "Momma Bunny's porridge was too cold, so she blew on it. Poppa Bunny's porridge was too hot, so he put it in the oven. But Baby Bunny's porridge was just right, so he poured it down his pants."

The Dumb Bunnies, is a family of three bunnies. Who are not the brightest bunnies. They do everything a little different then we would. The family decides to go into town and while they are gone someone breaks into their house. When the family returns they notice something is not right. When they see the little girl they all fell in love with her and they lived happily ever after.

This is one of my son's favorite books. He LAUGHS OUT LOUD at a couple of the parts. When I read it in my classroom I call it "the silly bunnies," but at home jack gets the full treatment. He rolls on the ground in all his six-year-old boyness at lines like "baby bunny loved goldilocks so much he flushed her down the toilet."

Sheer dumb fun.

This was one of my favorite books to read as a kid . I am afraid the nature of the book's sense of humor is similar to my adult humor as well as my childhood humor . Age is inevitable maturity is a choice
I read this book years ago, back in grade school. I don't remember much about The Dumb Bunnies books except really enjoying them, and thinking they were really funny/clever. I had forgotten all about them, and now I really want to go back and reread them!
Chelsea Merkley
This book is very silly, and quite funny. It may not be appropriate for a Kindergarten, or 1st Grade Class, depending on how mature they are. There are some very uproarious parts in the book, my son loves this book! He is 6! And loves reading it to me!
Christiana Tarpley
haha! Funny, funny book! Kids would love this one!!

Main idea of this story is just for fun reading and comparing stories with Goldilocks and The Three Bears. The main purpose of this book is to compare the bears and the bunnies.

The Dumb Bunnies combines children's stories and puns on life and literature. If you like Captain Underpants you will love this book. The bunnies are very dumb and silly. You will laugh your head off.

My students at school love this book, so I thought I'd share it with my boys. We don't use the word "dumb" in our house for anything, so I really struggled with that as I was reading it to them. Cute story that I think goes over better with kids than with their adult parents.

Recommends it for: People who like sucky books?
Mr. Pilkey! What were you thinking writing this trash? Ugh. My brain is I have just watched too many mindless cartoons on TV. I cannot believe people like this book. I would never read this to my children! I have no appreciation for dumb things....and neither should you. BIG FAIL!! ;_;

Kind of offensive...

Silly book full of backwards things! Perfect book for an indoor recess when kids need a break from thinking.
