Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In a bunny-themed picture book that will prove useful year-round, various elements work together to amplify suspense about a rampaging rabbit: “Big Bad Bunny has long sharp claws. Scritch! Scritch! Scritch!” Shifting from a bold, dramatic typeface to a traditional font, the narrative notes that “in the Mouse House, everything is quiet”; a delicate inset image shows oblivious Mama Mouse tucking in her brood. Suddenly she discovers that Baby Boo-Boo has disappeared. Her desperate search ultimately reveals that mouse and bunny are one and the same, paving the way to tender good-nights. Readers who know Billingsley’s middle-grade fantasies will recognize her delight in language in her first picture book, which features plenty of repetition and onomatopoeia. Karas deftly keeps the monster’s true identity under wraps until the right moment, and his mostly pastel palette and scribbly, nearly silly depictions will raise as many goose pimples as young children can bear. Characters who lose themselves in pretend play appear in many picture books, but this stellar read-aloud offers some fresh new tricks. Preschool-Grade 2. --Jennifer Mattson

3 1/2 years ago I checked this book out from the local library to read to my then 2 year old little boy. He was instantly in love and had me re-read that check out book dozens and dozens of times. He would read it to himself dozens of times, too. I'd see him sitting on the couch with his bunny book looking at the pictures. He'd say a phrase for each page. There's one page where the bunny's claws scritch, scritch, scritch and my son would gently scratch that page and say in his little toddler lisp, "sitch, sitch, sitch."

I could go on and on! It was his very favorite and we renewed that book from the library many times and re-checked it out a dozen times! Finally, 3 years later, I get smart and decide to buy it! haha! By this time (a few months ago, 2014) my son is now 5 and I have a 3 year old daughter and baby son. (I also have an 8 and 10 year old and they love the book too)
My 5 year old son still loves the book and smiles through it and reads along certain parts but now I have a 3 year old daughter sitting with us being introduced to this wonderful book. She reacts much like her big brother by falling completely in love and wanting it read dozens of times! The same familiar phrases from the book are heard around the house again :)

Big Bad Bunny is a *treasured* book in our home. I love it so much. My kids love it SO much. I can't recommend this book enough!!

My 3 year old twin grandsons adore this book. They ask for it all the time, they've memorized the whole thing and read it back to me. I first got it from the library and read to them over Skype with a webcam. They whined, I wish I had that book! I suggested they go to the library too, so they did. But we will both need to buy it with how much they adore it. Now they love Spooky Old Tree as well. That was my son's favorite when he was little. He wanted it read over and over again. Now the grandkids do too. We did not know about Big Bad Bunny back then. The nephews have introduced this new scary book to their uncle. I am an author/illustrator and I liked the illustrations as well as the story. True, that it would have been nice to have a dada, but still definitely a 5 star in our family. Like this book, I hope to find more "scary" books out there, that are also well written and present great life lessons.

I loved the story! The surprise ending was great. I felt the writing was so much better than the illustrating. I wouldn't read this to my three year old grandson because the pictures of "the rabbit" are too scary.

Great book for a participatory read aloud. It used to be my granddaughter's favorite until she grew up and fell in love with Nancy Drew. This was her first adventure tale, then I guess, but with a little kid spin.

My 3 year old's favorite book! After checking out from the library over and over and over, she now has her own copy.
