The artwork in this book is simply stunning. I wish I would have been introduced to this book before my children were born. I would have bought an extra copy just to cut the pictures out to so that I could frame them and decorate the nursery with them. Each picture is rich in detail and has a border that has elements of the picture reflected in it. As you read the stories, the pictures make you feel as if you are looking into Martha B. Rabbit's world.

The first story is called Martha B. Rabbit and the unexpected Guests. It is about Martha and her friend Tabitha the cat preparing for a long, cold winter. At first Tabitha doesn't know why they are working so hard, but when the winter sets in and the other woodland creatures show up at their door looking for help, she realizes how important it is to be prepared. The second story is called Martha B. Rabbit and Daphne the Forgetful Duck. Poor Daphne has a dreadful memory and forgets where she left her ducklings when she went to the market. Martha and friends help her her find them and save them from the dastardly foxes. In the end Martha and Tabitha offer to watch the ducklings whenever Daphne has to do her shopping and they get her help for her terrible memory. The third story is called Martha B. Rabbit and Those Wicked Rats Again. This story is about 3 rats who repeatedly try to ambush Martha on her way home from work so that they can steal her food. Each time they are thwarted by Martha's friends, Tabitha and Cuckoo.

These are classic stories that are absolutely timeless. They are a joy to read over and over again, which, if your children are anything like mine, you will find yourself doing. The book itself is printed on thick quality paper with a nice sheen to it. The hardcover is quite sturdy and very durable. Although it is currently out of print, you should do yourself a favor and try to get a copy on the used market. This book is a wonderful addition to any child's book collection.

I purchased this book used from Amazon for just four dollars. Except for one torn introductory page that was not part of the stories and had been neatly taped, the book was in great condition.

My granddaughter is only sixteen months old, so reading the stories as written is a bit advanced for her. However the stories are entertaining, so I paraphrase and concentrate on the absolutely amazing artwork. I carefully point to and name everything in the pictures.

When she is older, I will read the stories as written. But for now my paraphrasing is sufficient, and the artwork provides a visual and learning experience that she enjoys. I recommend this book.

This is absolutely one of my kids' favorite books. The stories are creative and fun, but it's the excellent artwork that really sets this book above others. The pictures are richly colorful and highly detailed with plenty to look at and entertain even the most fidgety child while you read the text.

Martha B. Rabbit and Tabitha Cat live in an apple tree house in the forest. In the first story, "The Unexpected Guests," Martha perceives that the coming winter will be an especially cold one. So they proceed to prepare and store away as much as possible, including organizing a nut gathering and berry-picking picnic among the neighborhood, and end up helping a herd of deer through the long and cold winter. The second story, "Daphne the Forgetful Duck" concerns a neighboring duck with a terrible memory and a large brood of ducklings that she has a hard time managing. Although Martha and Tabitha offer to watch the ducklings while Daphne goes to market, Daphne forgets and leaves them at home. The third story, and unquestionably my 5 year-old daughter's favorite, is "Those Wicked Rats Again." Blackie, Brownie, and Spotto are three rats who continually scheme to steal food from Martha as she walks home from work late at night. Their plots are clever but are always foiled by Tabitha, with very humorous pictures to go along. Highly recommended for young kids, although parents will probably have to read it to them for a while, as it's not exactly beginning vocabulary.
