Summer Reading 2017 Rabbit Stew


In a tale reminiscent of A Turkey for Thanksgiving, foxes Rusty and Rojo are gathering ingredients for their "prizewinning Rabbit Stew." As they move through the garden picking each component, we see a rabbit family peeking out from bushes and under leaves. Are these hungry gardeners really going to eat this cute and furry little family? The rabbits certainly seem worried about it, with their eyes wide and their whiskers twitching. Just take a look at the cover if you have any doubts.

The pages are filled with lush green celery, orange carrots, and purple kale. The language is as much fun as the colorful illustrations. Phrases like "lean, green runner beans" and "roly-poly blueberries" certainly sound delicious. The rabbit hole which stretches across three pages is filled with framed family portraits and sayings like "There's No Place Like Hole" or "Hole is Where the Heart is."

Readers will have a delightful time looking for members of the rabbit family on each page and waiting for the suspense to be over. Perfect for fans of Toucans, Too.

I received a review copy from the publisher.
