Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—The bear from Nyeu's Wonder Bear (Dial, 2008) returns in three simple stories. In each tale, six white bunnies are lounging around when Mr. or Mrs. Goat comes by and disrupts them. Bear comes to the rescue and repairs the damage. Each story ends with, "Everyone is happy." Although they may be satisfied, Bear's problem-solving methods are dubious. In the first tale, the bunnies are splattered in mud from Mr. Goat's tractor. Bear puts the bunnies in a washing machine (conveniently located in the meadow) and then hangs them up by their ears to dry on a clothesline overnight. Next, Mrs. Goat is inexplicably vacuuming the field and sucks up the bunnies that are dozing in their underground burrow (but not the leaves or grass from the ground). Bear removes them from the vacuum cleaner bag, hangs them on a vertical clothesline, and directs a large fan at them to blow off the dirt. In the final story, Mr. Goat cuts off the bunnies' tales while trimming the bushes. Bear uses a sewing machine to stitch them back on. Don't try this at home, kids! Nyeu's illustrations are silk-screened using water-based ink. The pastel palette and thickly outlined characters and objects are reminiscent of those in Crockett Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon (HarperCollins, 1955). The simple language and layout of the book make it suitable for beginning readers, but the art far outshines the unremarkable text.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

From Booklist

Nyeu offers a trio of quirky mishap tales in this dynamic picture book. The stories—each starring a group of wee bunnies, a helpful bear, and various domestic machines—are quick and packed full of cute: Bear sends the muddy bunnies for a spin in the washing machine, then hangs them out to dry; Bear fixes Mrs. Goat’s bunny-clogged vacuum cleaner; and Bear uses a sewing machine to reattach the bunnies’ tails after a garden-pruning mix-up by Mr. Goat. All end with a reassuring “Everyone is happy” and are mostly showcases for Nyeu’s elegant quiltlike artwork. Each tale is given a distinct color scheme that brings to mind the seasonal washes of Kevin Henkes’ Old Bear (2008), from watery aquas to dusty oranges to grassy greens. The engaging whorls and curved lines offer plenty to savor visually, and an added auditory element (“WHIRRRRR goes the fan” and “Zumm-Zumm-Zumm-Zumm goes the sewing machine”) adds to the fun when read aloud. Preschool. --Ian Chipman

Format: Hardcover
Please -- the humor in this book is directly related to the incongruity of the events. Even small children will recognize the silliness of cleaning bunnies in washing machines or of sewing their tails back on (very gently!) with a sewing machine! The juxtaposition of the bucolic bunnies and the technology of housekeeping is what puts you in stitches when you read this book. Mrs. Goat vacuuming the great outdoors, and along with it, up come the bunnies? It's cartoon slapstick! With all due respect to the concerned reviewer who finds this book not suitable for small children, try reading this book for what it is -- a silly story guaranteed to make young listeners gleefully point out the impossibilities of its events. This isn't a book a child reads for himself and "learns" from, it's a storytime book!

This is the cutest book ever! I loved the stories and the simple pictures. My (barely) 4 year old daughter found it to be quite entertaining. She seemed to understand its silliness. She wasn't phased about the bunnies in the washing machine. She definately knows that she shouldn't put our cats in the washing machine, so this didn't seem to bother me. (And I am an animal lover and an animal activist.) We are pretty clear with our daughter that she needs to be nice to all creatures, etc. She seems to understand the difference between reality and pretend quite well. This book wasn't a problem. I guess even a 4 year old seems to know the difference. She kind of chuckled about it. I wasn't certain if she'd like the subdued colors, but she didn't seem to mind. I actually LOVED the book and plan on putting it into my "favorite shelf". Love the subtle sense of humor and the darling pictures! This is the cutest book ever! If anything, buy it to entertain yourself!

I Love this book!
I have a young one (5). who is exactly the book's target audience.
(and he absolutely loved it as well)
The thing is, as an adult, I am the one doing the reading, so I appreciate books that I find entertaining as well as those with excellent illustrations.
This book delivers on BOTH COUNTS!
Is really 3 different stories that end like they should, but the journey is VERY funny and the art is really top notch!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Format: Hardcover
This adorable and charming book showcases the cutest little bunnies you'll ever see! Six bunnies inadvertently get involved in troubles. First they get muddied by a splash from Mr. Goat's tractor: Bear washes them (in a washing machine in the middle of the field). Second, they are whisked up into Mrs. Goat's vacuum cleaner bag (she is vacuuming the field): Bear dusts them off (with a huge fan). The bunnies play hide and seek in the hedges, and their little tails look like hedge flowers. As Mr. Goat trims the bushes, he is distracted by a butterfly and snips off a few bunny tails. Bear gently sews them back on (with a large sewing machine). Sweetly lopsided and quietly understated, this story works fine as a read-aloud, but best as a book that a young child returns to again and again.

Format: Hardcover
From muddy bunnies to dusty bunnies to bunnies with no tails, Bear and Mr. Goat always know what to do, making sure that the bunnies are "good as new." The simplest of text for young readers, paired with simple graphic illustrations makes a delightful match for 3-6-year-olds.

Format: Hardcover
I checked this book out from the library based on the pictures because my 3 year old daughter is really into bunnies. When I started reading it her my reaction was "What the ....? (fill in the blank), what kind of book is this? I checked the cover to make sure it was a kids book and not a cartoon book for adults, something like an Edward Gorey book. The stories were about sticking bunnies in a washing machine, sucking them up in a vacuum cleaner and then about cutting off their tales and resewing them on with a sewing machine. While I was reading it I had to stress to my daughter that we don't really put animals in the washing machine. (Might seem like common sense but right now in the news there is a story about a dad that put his kid in a washing machine for a joke.) Beyond the morbid stories, although the pictures are cute, some are weird. For example, the bunnies hanging on the line to dry at night look dead, like they had been hung for some sort of crime. It reminded me of one of those pictures from the Old West with the hung criminals all lined up. For the record I'm not one of those overly politically correct moms, I do think things have become a little extreme in that department. I just don't think animal cruelty in children's books is amusing or cute. Surely the author could have come up with a better story line to showcase her art work.

Format: Hardcover
The art is the star of this show. These bunnies are so adorable I defy anyone to look at them without smiling. I also found this to be a very funny story. From muddy bunnies in the washing machine to the picture of the bear carefully sewing their tails back on after they are accidently snipped off in the garden, this book strikes the perfect note for lap time reading. I think this is better for one on one sharing where you would have more time to enjoy the pictures, although I can see it working for small groups as well. My favorite picture is of all the little bunnies napping on the clothesline while they dry. Too cute to miss.
