Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In Hannigan’s debut novel, Ida B (2004), she introduced a furious young heroine trying to cope with changes in her life. Here, in this quiet fantasy, she offers something quite different. Emmaline wants a bunny, but Emmaline lives on Shipshape Street in the town of Neatasapin. Enforcing the tidiness is Mayor Oliphant, who insists that children be silent and spotless and houses be spick-and-span. The intimidated electorate adheres to his edicts. But Emmaline, a puddle splasher and silly-phrase shouter (“Dinglederrydee!”) is an anomaly, albeit a lonely one, since the other kids won’t play with her. So she seeks out a wild bunny, which she finds, and loses, and finds again, and in the process changes both her parents and her town. Told in very short chapters and using language in unusual ways, this is a small delight, cunningly illustrated by Hannigan’s own sweet watercolors, reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s works. The fun wordplay is just the thing to get new readers going, but most children will simply enjoy listening to the story—again and again. Grades 1-3. --Ilene Cooper

Review

“A small delight, cunningly illustrated by Hannigan’s own sweet watercolors, reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s works.” (Booklist (starred review))

“With playful, alliterative, fun-to-read-aloud language and its fantastical storyline, this winning, 32-chapter novelette recalls the magical whimsy of Roald Dahl.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“An ideal read-aloud.” (School Library Journal)

Everyone was always asking Emmaline questions. When she told them she wanted a bunny, no one paid any attention. She just happened to live on Shipshape Street in the town of Neatasapin and a messy bunny was simply out of the question.

Even Mayor Orson Oliphant was against messy animals and messy little girls. He sent those messy animals away and if Emmaline didn't shape up he threatened to send her away too. Bye, bye! It looked like Emmaline didn't have a chance at getting a bunny, but she could dream. Her mother said she could have one if she could be neat and tidy for one month. "Whakadoodlewhipperpoo, she sighed, this is very hard to do!" Would she ever get the kind of bunny she wanted? Would Mayor Oliphant wreck her plans?

This is an adorable book, complimented by lovely full color watercolors. This chapter book can be read alone, but I see it more as a circle time book or a personal "sit in a rocking chair, cuddle up book" to be shared with a loved one. It's a surefire memory maker for the little ones, especially if you purchase a stuffed bunny along with the book to add to cuddle time.

Scoot-skedaddle this book right into your shopping cart, and do not wait!

I'm our family's head groundskeeper, so to speak, and I make sure each child has their "own" trees and shrubs that we have planted on special occasions, their own bits of the yard to decorate (windchimes, painted bird houses, painted fences, climbing vines, bird feeders, etc.) I also make sure each child has a garden to work in every year, and they can pick out their seeds and plant them. We live in Phoenix, so we can plant 3 times a year. My oldest is absolutely nutsos about gardening. He is always the first one downstairs in the morning, zipping outside to look for progress. He is the child who measures off how high the beanstalks are, how wide across the sunflowers have gotten, and how the perennials are doing. His job is composting, and for him it is not even a chore to take it out and dump it into the composter every night. He is careful about watering and very, very interested in his "untidy" space.

Watching the kids out in their gardens has made me value dirt more than I already did, because their little personalities sparkle when they garden. This one sings to the flowers, this one plants only stuff we can eat, this one overwaters and sits plop down in the mud, this one insists on hanging windchimes all over... they are careful and free and responsible and messy and HAPPY when they garden. Glory be.

Emmaline and the Bunny sings to that message -- that children are wild and free, that gardens are fun and secret places, that trees and bushes are an invitation to wild creatures to come and hang out near the people. The book even features a wise old-lady gardener, just like me! (and for extra magic, her braid has its own personality!

Emmiline is a little girl that lives in a town called Neatasapin. In her town everything is always in order. Emmiline has a hard time ffitting in the town, she like to get dirty and make messes! The one thing that she wants most of all is a bunny. Her parents tell her that bunnies are not allowed in Neatasapin. Emmiline sets off on a quest of her own to find a bunny of her own. When her parents see how happy the bunny makes their daughter they decide to buck the system and give the bunny a home at their house in Neatasapin. Find out what big changes are made based on that desision!

This book is perfect for those children that are just starting to read chapter books. The chapters are short and the water color illustrations add alot to the story.
