It's been years since I've read this book but the beautiful illustrations still stick with me. The entire Serendipity series was centered around a variety of moral and life lessons. Buttermilk is about being afraid of the unknown and using knowledge to conquer fear.

My favorite part of the story involves Buttermilk the bunny finding out that a dreaded dragon is only a willow tree... but if you look closely in the illustrations, there's a tiny, adorable dragon in the picture. Definitely a good boo

Extremely adorable but also very good at not being condescending toward the reality of night-time fears. This is a great moment of reassurance that your imagination can get away from you when it's dark and shadowy; I gave it four stars instead of five because the wrap-up moral at the end destroys that sense of understanding by simply saying that monsters aren't real. Of course they're not real, but they feel real enough (especially to children) that there isn't much difference.

Also, ten million

Adorable book that shows just how much the imagination plays havoc in the dark while Robin James does a great job of making those night-time monsters so graphic looking that you can agree with Buttermilk. And I love the idea how her father doesn't only comforts her but takes her out the next day to see what the actual monsters were. Loved the little dragon under the willow tree :)

Definitely one of the best.....

This is a wonderful book series for kids that want to work toward reading chapter books but are not quiet there yet. Every other page has a beautiful illustration next to a page that is not overwhelming with text.

In this story Buttermilk is on her way home to her bunny burrow when night comes sooner than anticipated. So many scary things hid in the shadows at night, and Buttermilk fears her fast feet are not fast enough to get her to safety.

Serendipity books have always been some of the best ones for kids in my opinion. Buttermilk is just one that I adored as a child. When I was 6 I loved the book so much I drew the cover for my art teacher and it made a blue ribbon at the art show that year. I wish I still had it! I will be checking the library for this one for my little ones soon as well.

Beautiful illustrations. My son loves to look at the pictures and he can read the book alone. It's not too hard for 6 year old boys to read.

I remember this cover, so I'm pretty sure I read this one since I liked Squeakers so much.
