Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In one of the inaugural titles from the Abbeville Kids imprint, Sophie's family is returning from vacation when her stuffed rabbit, Felix, disappears in a crowded airport. Readers will spot the lost toy on the luggage conveyor depicted in the first of Droop's cheery, busy spreads. As the distressed child goes home, Felix embarks on a whirlwind international tour, communicating with Sophie via five letters (which can be removed from envelopes attached to the pages). After each epistle describes the rabbit's sightseeing adventures in London, Paris, Rome, Cairo, Kenya and New York City, Langen fleshes out Felix's travelogue with additional information about the locales. Though its format obviously recalls the Jolly Postman books, Langen's wordy, occasionally awkward narrative lacks the ingenuity of those works. There are, however, several fetching extras: also tucked into the envelopes are a color snapshot of Felix in front of the Eiffel Tower and a "secret pyramid map" from Egypt; and-when he finally arrives home on Christmas Eve-Felix carries a suitcase containing six travel decals. All ages.

Felix is a little Rabbit who gets lost from his owner, and then travels around the world, mailing letters and postcards back home, untill he finally returns home himself on Christmas Eve.
Our world of today has become quite small because of all the travelling we do, but this can be difficult for a child to understand. Felix is a good helper here. Through his travel letters he tells in a fun and friendly way about the adventures he meets. And his stories are a good start to tell children about our adventurous world. Use an atlas or a map book when you read for your child, and you can have a good conversation about our huge world.
We travel alot, so my 6 years old Marta has been to several of the places mentioned in the book. And I have been to some more and can tell about my travelling. The book Letters from Felix is more than a book actually. It also contains all the letters sent home by Felix, so we can open them and read them - over and over again. And it also contains small souvenirs from the places Felix visited.
Lately I have heard about a little doll named Flat Stanley. He, like Felix, travels around the world, actually he spent Christmas with us here in Norway, and with our relatives on Iceland this winter. I don't have the Flat Stanley book, but I'm thinking of sending a small Felix around the world, a Felix who can write back to my little daughter about the places he visits.
Letters from Felix is a wonderful book teaching your kids about travelling and about different cultures. We love the book here in our house, and also has a huge Felix who spends every night in my daughters bed.

I am a second grade teacher who absolutely loves this book. The children enjoy reading this book as much as I do! Their eyes widen as each letter and little surprise is taken out of each envelope! The children were quite inspired by this series that they have created their own Felix-type of books. What a great concept! Read all of the Felix and Jolly Postman books...they are well worth it!

We love this book! I had seen it years ago and wished I had picked it up then but now that i have a child who loves to read, I had to get it. It is the story of a little girl who loses her favorite toy Felix. He goes around the world and sends her letters sharing his adventures. The letters come in an envelope and are great fun for the child to open up. It is a great way for kids to begin learning about geography and other countries. My child is 3 and loves it. Highly recommend.

My kids and I love this book! The story revolves around a little girl who lost her stuffed rabbit, and he explores the world on his way back to her. The letters in the envelopes are fun for the kids to open, and the pictures are fantastic! I read this to my daughter when she was 3 years old, and now her 3rd grade teacher borrowed it to read to the class. It's a good book for a wide variety of ages, even Mommy enjoyed it! THIS one will become a family keepsake......

The memory I have of my daughter and I reading this book for the first time is one of my absolute favorite memories. We both could not wait til we turned the next page. My daughter is now 22. I have a niece with a very vivid imagination and I knew she would LOVE this book, too. Her eyes were huge as we read the book together as she was filled with wonder and concern and joy. I could not recommend this book with more enthusiasm. :)

For children the book is all about the letters Felix writes to his owner. After receiving this book I found that three of the letters were missing so essentially the book is missing three pages. This is not the condition I was assured I was getting. I'm very disappointed. It ruins the book for children!

For my son's first birthday, a good friend and my sister gave him something about Felix the rabbit (a cup and a backpack, they both live in Germany, seems Felix the rabbit is more famous there than here in USA), because my son's name is Felix. However, I waited until he's almost two to buy the first Felix book. We really enjoy the book, since we travel a lot (along last year, we flew more than 30,000 miles), and Felix knows people talk differently and they look different. With the book, Felix can already tell the cities' and countries' names by picking out the right stickers or by pointing at the map. I can tell him some of my trips to the European cities I went before he was born. We are planning a trip to Asia in May, and I'll buy another Felix book before the trip, so that we can read it on the airplane.

Felix is the class mascot for my daughter's second grade class. Every week the class "travels" with Felix to visit another country and learn about a new culture.
The artwork is warm and coloful. The unique feature of the Felix books, is the series of letters, which Felix "writes and sends" back to his friend, Sophie, as he travels around the world and tells of his adventures. It is a high quality picture book, that should not be given to children much younger than second grade -- it is designed to be a book that is treasured by the child.
