Three dust bunnies, Ed, Ned, and Ted, rhyme all the time. They say that far, jar, and tar rhyme with car, but a fourth dust bunny, Bob, just does not seem to get it; he says, “Look!” When they try and teach him that rug, hug, and mug rhyme with bug, he says, “Look out!” Of course, the smug majority is wrong. Bob’s warnings come true and when a broom and then a vacuum cleaner prove him right, the rhyming trio ask Bob what rhymes with “How do we get out?” With thick black lines and neon colors, the dust creatures on the bright colored pages look like the huge monsters that they think they are––until the big, powerful human tools take over. Preschoolers will recognize how it feels to be just a mite in a grown-up world, and they will enjoy the playful rhymes and simple wordplay as much as the bold scenarios of the tiniest creatures in danger from giants, and one hero who sees it coming.
