What an odd, cute, slightly disturbing and somewhat adorable little book! If that sounds like an impossible combination, you have to read this and see for yourself. The illustrations are so cute, they have a distinctive style and I enjoyed them on the whole. The story is kind of cute, but also odd. A cute little bunny family is constantly plagued by Mr and Mrs Goat who are cleaning and doing yard work. ***SPOILERS*** It starts off innocently enough with bunnies getting splashed with mud, going to bear to be cleaned... but they are put in the washing machine, um, odd! Then, they are caught up in a vacuum cleaner (eeek, scary!) and, finally, their tails are cut off by Mr Goat pruning his hedges--ouch! and they look so sad holding those little cotton tails in their paws. Of course, bear fixes everything, the Goats don't mean any harm (but, um, they are terribly careless; and carelessness doesn't equal blamelessness!). In the end "everyone is happy" and I don't think the author meant anything sadistic here. Maybe I'm just being a lame adult here, and maybe kids will find it fun and imaginative, but I couldn't help be a little disturbed by the situations the poor bunnies find themselves in.
