From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. Take one resolute Ruby, add one sly Max, blend in a shopping trip to buy Grandmother's birthday present?and a money mix-up is sure to happen. Ruby's gift of choice is a ballerina-decorated music box, Max's is vampire teeth oozing cherry syrup. The music box proves too expensive, the teeth drool all over Max's outfit, resulting in a side trip to the laundromat, but Grandma does get two birthday presents that please her indeed. Before that happy ending, however, a lesson on the value of money cleverly unfolds. To help her young audience, Wells provides visual clues in the form of Bunny Money and invites readers to photocopy, cut out, and paste together the sheets of Bunny dollars included, which depict Max, Ruby, and a chuckle-inducing assortment of well-known figures (Julia Child, Desmond Tutu, Fred Astaire, Jane Austen, Jesse Owens) in rabbit guise. In relation to the many math picture books currently being published, this title rates up there with Stuart Murphy's "MathStart" series (HarperCollins) and Loreen Leedy's Monster Money Book (Holiday, 1992). As usual, Wells's line work is extraordinary; with seemingly minimum effort?but with maximum effect?the changing expressions on her characters' faces deftly delineate their personalities. To sum up, Wells's droll humor is right on the money.?Barbara Elleman, Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI

From Booklist

Ages 3^-6. A companion to the uproarious Bunny Cakes , this is a very funny birthday story. Max and his sister, Ruby, are shopping for Grandma's birthday present. Ruby has saved up a walletful of money, and, as usual, she's in charge. Or she thinks she is. She has plans for an elaborate gift, but Max is sure that Grandma would prefer a set of gorgeous glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth, and he tries them out. The money slowly gets used up as Max gets thirsty, hungry, and messy (they have to spend three dollars at the laundromat), but in the end, there's enough for them each to buy a perfect gift. In the final glorious picture, Grandma is thrilled to play Ruby's musical bluebird earrings and to wear Max's vampire teeth all the way home.

Wells' ink-and-watercolor illustrations show the sibling edginess and the shopping scenarios with economy and zest: one frame pictures the green vampire teeth on the shelf, pointing at an enthralled, wide-eyed, huge-eared Max. Children will also enjoy keeping track of the money as the wallet empties out. On the endpapers there are pictures of one-and five-dollar bills, with various bunny portraits in place of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Some show Max and Ruby; others show celebrity bunnies, from Martina Navratilova and Eleanor Roosevelt to Desmond Tutu. Wells suggests that grown-ups help kids photocopy, paste, count, and shop with the bunny money. Be sure to add this to the Booklist bibliography "Beginning Math Books" . Hazel Rochman

Cute! Max and Ruby go shopping for their Grandma's birthday, but are disappointed when their dream gift costs $100. They do not have much money and Max keeps wasting it. (Food, trip to the laundromat, bus fare, etc.) They manage to buy two "great" presents~ from Ruby, singing bluebird earrings, from Max glow in the dark vampire teeth. But their money is all used up. So Grandma picks them up and she wears the gifts all they way home.
It is a math lesson because they show how much money they have before and after the buy. (Like they have eight dollars, they spend two dollars, they have six left.)

We are 2nd graders. Our names are Dominque, James, and Casey. We have been reading books by Rosemary Wells. Our favorite book is BUNNY MONEY. Dominque liked the part when Grandma was wearing the teeth and the earrings. Dominque felt good and wishes he could have money like that. James liked the part when Ruby had to take Max to the wash. It was funny to see cherry syrup all over Max! Casey liked the part when Ruby told Max to take her to the store to get candy and she was messy.

I think this is one of the better Max and Ruby books, along with Bunny Cakes and Bunny Party. Has play money on the end pages that you can photocopy and cut out for your kids to play with. Neat concept and fun to discuss who the "famous rabbits" on the different bills are supposed to be.

I am a second grader. My name is Anthony L. I have been reading a lot of books by Rosemary Wells in my classroom, and BUNNY MONEY is my favorite book. Grandma put the earrings and the vampire teeth on and she looked funny!!

Laughing out loud! Who says this is for ages 4-7? The picture of grandma with the vampire teeth had me in hysterics. These are very intelligent--even deep-- stories, but the pictures are incredible. My daughter will have to teach *me* how to share.

I chose this book for my child's kindergarten teacher's library! She has been teaching them about money, and this is a great excercise for them to "spend" the money along with Max and Ruby.

I used this in my pre-school class and it was a fun way for the students to keep track of how much money Ruby and Max had. Good lesson wise spending and use of money. Deciding on what was a good choice. Good lesson on keeping some money in reserve for emergency. The class had fun adding and subtracting the money.
