The art in this bunny book is priceless...they'll haunt your conceptual imagery references for a long time to come in the same way as the bunnies in Wallace and Grommit's feature length film.

This is kind of a cute read, but not really one of the best children's books in my opinion. It's basically about a bunny whose family always thinks he's bad, but he doesn't TRY to be bad. So another truly troublemaker bunny comes along, and shows the family what a really bad bunny is. Like I said, it's cute, probably worth the read, but not one of the favorites that we own.
A perfect opportunity to distinguish between being bad, doing a bad thing, and having an accident, wasted. Also provides a few trouble making ideas for the unimaginative child looking to experiment with your definition and tolerance of each. This book can be safely enjoyed iff one peppers in the lessons during the reading.
With a degree in fine arts, Marilyn Sadler assumed she would be an illustrator. But when early in her career she was presented with an opportunity to write, she seized it and quickly discovered that she had found her true love. No sad, sappy stories for her, however. She likes to make herself laugh, and with that her characters usually end up looking pretty silly for one reason or another.More about Marilyn Sadler...
