Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-- Little Rabbit Foo Foo hops through the forest, picking up various creatures--field mice, wriggly worms, tigers, and goblins--and bopping them on the head with his red mallet. The Good Fairy warns him to stop, but finally turns him into a goon. This slightly retold version of a popular children's song has a lot of energy; unfortunately, Rosen includes neither music nor even a preface to let readers know that the tune is the same as "Down by the Railroad." The illustrations are bright, cheerful, and clearly detailed, if somewhat reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons. Amusing, but not an essential purchase--acting out the song is still more fun than reading it aloud. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA

Review

"Simple and hilarious... I laugh every time I think about it. Arthur Robins' pictures are a barely controlled riot." Susan Hill, The Sunday Times; "Full of life and hilarity... A compulsive story-time book." Child Education

I bought this book long ago from Scholastic.
M. Briggs
The animated version on u-tube brings the story to life and there is written music to the song in the back of the book.

She is now able to go through the entire story, page by page on her own.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the funniest, most amusing and quirky little children's books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I can tell you truthfully, I have yet to read this to a kid that did not like it and either giggle or smirk over the thing. The song, Little Rabbit Foo Foo has been around for years but this work was first published in 1990.

The story consists of a small rotten little rabbit. This little guy has a large hand-held net, a large wooden mallet and a motorcycle. The delinquent little bunny spends his days riding around the forest scooping up various critters such as field mice, wriggly worms, tigers and finally goblins, and then bopping them all on the head with his hammer. Needless to say, Little Bunny Foo Foo is not a very popular member of the forest community.

Finally the Good Fairy comes down and warns the little rabbit bully that he has three chances to mend his ways or she will turn him into a goon! Well of course the little guy does not listen, develops an attitude and keep right on riding and bopping. He goes over the line and reaps his just reward.

The text is extremely catchy and you will find yourself and the kids humming it and wording it even when the book is not being read.

"Little Rabbit Foo Foo
riding through the forest,
scooping up the wriggly worms
and bopping them on the head."

The art work by Arthur Robins is quite good enough to stand alone even without the wonderful words of the author. Each picture is very unique and you can spend a lot of time just discovering little details that you missed during previous readings. The expression on Bunny's face and all of the forest creatures is absolutely delightful.

The book adds a lot to the song -- the illustrations mix a motorbike, little folk, tigers, and the birds from Dumbo and make every page worth examining. The story is great.

The only thing that bugs me is this isn't the version I read in the library! That version has her turn him into a goon, which is so much better! The way I read (try saying it out loud), "I'm gonna turn you into a goon!" is so much more fun to say than "I'm gonna turn you into a goonie." And they had to remove the "hare today, goon tomorrow" punchline. What the heck? I just read it my way, including narrating the transformation from rabbit to goon like this: "Rabba-rabba-rabba-rabba-GOON!!!!!" It's just not the same with "goonie." Bad move.

This is one of the funniest books I have read as a child and that I read to my children. It is about a rabbit whole boops animals on the head and is given three chances by the goo fairy to change. If he doesnt he gets turned into a goonie. Well little nauty rabbit foo foo doesnt listen and ends up being a goonie. Great pictures and theme that can be played like a song.

If you don't like this book you have no sense of humor :) The expressions on Little Rabbit Foo Foo's evil face are hysterical. Despite repeated warnings from the Good Fairy to change his attitude or be turned into a "goonie" Little Rabbit Foo Foo remains irrepressibly naughty.

This was one of my favorite books as a child, so I had to rebuy it when I couldn't find my original. It's still just as cute as I remember it being. =3

I have received no book thus far. I'm very disappointed, it is very past due and not acceptable anymore. I would expect someone to do whatever it takes to make sure I get it. But since that has not happened I do expect a refund immediately. I have heard nothing from mind traveler and will never use them again. I wish someone would pay attention to my emails and make me feel like a paying customer instead of a nobody. Please somebody make me feel important. This sucks!!!

This was something dear to me as my youngest son not 33 used to sing this when he was 4. It brought back some many memories of him as a little kid
