Amazon.com Review

In this celebration of reading, a giddy brown and white rabbit capers through the woods, singing the praises of his little storybook. From the way his book looks and feels, to the places he can go in it, to the fantastical characters he can meet, the bookworm bunny thoroughly enjoys his tiny tome. Anita Jeram, illustrator of Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You, brings to life another lovable bunny in this jaunty romp. The playful illustrations show friendly lions, a vibrant lake, and a tree-palace where Beauty lies sleeping while unicorns graze below. Unfortunately, the narrative is rather insipid, and the rabbit's repeated accolades are cloying. Children may be able to get beyond that more easily than their parents, and everyone should enjoy the concept of adventuring through the magic of the written (and illustrated) word. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Delivering a similar message to Kristine O'Connell George's Book! (reviewed October 1), Jeram's (Kiss Good Night) story stars a bunny who waxes rapturous about the delights of his favorite book. "I love the way it looks. I love the way it feels. I love the places I can go to in my storybook," he says, neatly encapsulating a preschooler's delight in both the sheer physical appeal of a book ("I love to make its pages flick so I can feel the breeze") as well as the characters and setting. But it's Jeram's winsome watercolors that float this lightweight, agreeable tale. In a nifty visual metaphor, the bunny sets his book down on a nearby branch and steps through a door in a tree; he simultaneously leaves behind a world of framed vignettes for that of full-bleed spreads in pastel washes, and a gentle adventure follows. He encounters such creatures as a frog prince, a not very scary giant (only his shoes and striped socks are visible) and some fetching fairies (tiny white rabbits and a white rat with wings). The story's conclusion may not be dramatic, but it offers plenty of appeal to the preschool set. Ages 2-5.
