Good for preschool kids

The main story line was average with elements of several popular children's stories. It was definitely aimed at young readers or more likely, preschoolers with parents reading.

The lessons were obvious and sometimes rather heavy handed. But they were important ones for kids & grownups alike.

This is a very easy read that goes by super fast. The characters are predictable but enjoyable. It leaves enough questions about whats going to happen next that I want to read the next book.

Where's Book two?

What a romp! Every character is roughed out and lovable enough to leave a mystery yet carry the story. Rene and Rhea are wonderful, but Grandpa and Casper have much to teach. Hurry hurry book two, book two.

This review contains spoilers.. I was disappointed in the ending and want to discuss it.

This is middle grade or below fiction. Though I would suggest it be read by an adult, as I think some of the ideas too advanced for such readers. Basically, a man (or male rabbit) sells a town on the idea of a communist heaven and then enslaves them as soon as he has control of the resources. As many such books, the plot is predicated on the idea that all knowledge can somehow be lost in a generation or two,
