Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Three feckless hares discover the convenience of having an imaginary scapegoat named Alex. "I just made him up!" says Bouncer gleefully to his long-eared brothers, Buster and Baby, after their carousing wakes an angry Bear. "Now anytime we get into trouble, we can just say that Alex did it!" But when a real hare named Alex arrives in the forest, they realize that if they don't fess up, their new friend will have to take the blame for all their pranks. German author Weigelt's premise will hook readers what child hasn't yearned to evade responsibility for misbehavior? And the author doesn't soft-pedal the consequences: when Buster, Bouncer and Baby own up to their crimes by introducing the real Alex, "All the animals were mad at the little hares. But Alex got welcoming presents from everyone." (Alex is nice enough to share with his new and newly repentant friends). Rendered in golds, greens and burnished oranges, Kadmon's (Luke the Lionhearted) pastels have a lush, sunlit velvetiness. The soothing spreads soften the effective but somewhat heavy-handed message. Ages 5-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Bouncer, Buster, and Baby are exuberant young hares that rampage through the forest, getting into mischief. After noisily awakening cranky Bear, the frightened Bouncer thinks quickly and declares that the guilty party is a newcomer named Alex. The trick works so well that Alex is blamed for pranks such as blocking up Badger's hole and tearing up Rabbit's vegetable garden. Then the boys meet an actual new hare whose name really is Alex. Ashamed, they confess that they have been blaming him for all their misdeeds. To make amends, they tell the truth and introduce him to the other animals, who welcome him warmly. The brisk, easy-to-read text is generously illustrated with warmly colored pictures-some full pages, some spreads, and others vignettes-all filled with swirling action. In a large format with well-spaced typography, the animals are depicted in a semi-realistic style, with delightfully human facial expressions.
