I, love these scratch and sniff books.
Pinky
It's a cute story, and is a wonderful "interactive" option for bed-time reading for kids.

"If ain`t broke, don`t fix it."
I love this book, and I ordered the Jan. 2004 edition in order to share this wonderful memory with other little readers. The original illustrations are still intact as far as I know, but what happened to the chocolate mint cookie?!...And what happened to those great stickers that I used to fawn over? They`ve all been exchanged for plain round and glossy stickers glued on to the illustrations, as if the only reason for them was to give off the scent! Even the sticker in the spoon for the jam was sacrificed! I used to be amazed by them, because they were duplicates of the illustrations in scratch n` sniff form...it was like I really did have my very own sample of everything Little Bunny tried. The current ones look like a cost-cutting maneuver, and they stick out like a sore thumb!
As long as Golden Books is going to reprint a book that is an old favorite, why did they have to sacrifice these details?!
By the way, the illustrations of this book and text are still great; anyone who didn`t catch the original version are not going to be sorry. People who buy this out of nostalgia, however, will notice!
Chocolate chip cookie, my foot! *grumble, grumble*

The integrity of this book is seriously compromised by the new, non-descript, circular stickers. They actually obscure the illustrations that they cover. It makes me sad that what used to be a childhood favorite is now seems so cheaply made. Also, the scents are faint. If you're buying the book for the story and illustrations it is still fun. But if the scratch-n-sniff aspect is an important component(why wouldn't it be?), you'll probably be disappointed.

Bought this book in December 2004 and 10 months later NONE of the scent stickers smell anymore. Very disappointing! We didn't overscratch either as can sometimes be the problem. The scents simply wore off. Interesting nobody else here has mentioned the problem though. Wonder if it is just our book???? Wish I could get new stickers!!

This is a wonderful book! I can remember not being able to read the text when I was younger to go on to learn out to read it as I got older. I loved the scratch and sniff parts of the book. However in the older book the stickers were in the shape of the object to be smelled. Now there are just round stickers. The scents still smell pretty much the same though.

My daughter loves to smell everything like flowers, food, candles, soap - you name it. When I saw this book was a cute bunny story combined with 6 scratch and sniff stickers, I was sold. Unlike other reviewers I was never lucky enough to know the original book, so I can't say how much it's gone down hill since I was a child. All I can say is that for right now, not 30 years ago, this is one fantastic story.

The scents are all very strong, and they go great with the tale of a bunny spending the day outside "following his nose". My daughter can't get enough of this book. The first time I read it to her I think it blew her mind. She looked at me, smiled and said, "Daddy, why does this book smell good like food?" She made me read it back to back, then she held on to it smelling the pages as I read her other books. I've read it to her every night since.

The only thing that bothers me is that the whole "scratch-and-sniff" sticker and book concept seems so 80s now. It is hard to find any decent books or stickers since this "fad" is now a thing of the past. That is too bad, because this is something most adults still remember and cherish from their childhood.

UPDATE: almost a year later and I wish I could remove a star or two. The scents are all but gone. You can probably find 15-20 year old stickers that still have faint smells, but after only a year these are almost 100% scent-less. What a disappointment.

I remembered this book from when I was a child. I remember the scratch n sniff stickers being the shape of the scents. Now to make things cheaper (as all the books and toys do) they replaced the shaped stickers with a 'spot' scratch and sniff sticker. Not nearly as scented as the original.
and now the pine cone doesn't "smell like Christmas" it "smells like winter"? and the 'chocolate mint' cookies are now chocolate chip.
Still a cute book and story, my 3 yr old daughter loves....but a shame they changed anything in my opinion.

I bought this book for my 2yr old daughter because I remembered how much I enjoyed books with scents when I was little. She did enjoy the book; however, it quickly lost almost all of the scents over just a couple of months. My daughter is still 2, and just recently started pulling this book out again to read, but we are both disappointed that most of the scents are completely gone now. This book was only gently used, no rough scratching of stickers or anything like that. Only the pine and chocolate chip cookie scents are still there. After smelling each one, she keeps saying "It's not working. We have to get a new one." I'm looking around for other books now that will hopefully having lasting scents.

I purchased this book for my 2 year old as I had it as a child and absolutely loved it! While the story is really cute, and my daughter enjoys it very much, I have to say I'm dissappointed in the scratch-n-sniff stickers in this edition. I agree with the reviewer who said the shape of the stickers was a part of the charm of this book, and now they are cheap round circles instead of shaped like the specific items. Additionally, the smells aren't very strong; some of them don't even smell like anything. If it weren't for that, I'd give it 5 stars.
