Narcissa claims to be the best-looking bunny around. She thinks that makes her pretty awesome, unlike some of her fellow forest creatures. She's so happy she doesn't have silly beaver teeth or crazy moose antlers! In fact, she loves making fun of other animals- until a chance encounter with a powerful magic frog makes her rethink what it means to be pretty.

A nice little spin on the tale of Narcissus, with the bunny being Narcissia. I found it interesting how the story comes full circle, but the bunny learns no lesson. Daring move, which I found funny in its sinister implications on vanity.

I love this book, I had a parent complain that it "didn't teach the children a lesson," who cares?! This book is hilarious, and the kids always love it.
A pretty rabbit, Narcissa, makes fun of any creature that is not as lovely as herself until she offends a magic frog and finds her own beauty changing.

Thanks to the author's little note at the end, it's impossible to not read the bunny's voice as Stephen Colbert. It just works perfectly.
I started out hating it..but came around at the end. I'm still on the fence and not sure it would be a good story time book. Definitely one that you'd want to discuss while you read....

HA, this books is great! It had me at "I'm so awesome". And the moose killed me. Probably not the best message at the end but then I guess it shows we don't all learn the lessons.

This took my by surprise! I went back and reread it thinking I was missing something! Not a typical ending but ok, I get it!

I like the idea that kids can continue the story once this one is over, but Narcissa is still not very likeable OR very cute.
