I'm lucky enough to have a Rabbit living at home...too clever by far sometimes, but thank goodness he's nimble and resourceful, too, because like Rosie, he enjoys those run-for-your-life adventures way too much! --Book Dragon, Smithsonian Book Blog
This book is my favorite from the series. While the story is cute, I fell in love with Justin Roth's artwork. Rosie the rabbit is just adorable, and her rabbit family and friends are just as cute. --Supah Cute
I enjoyed how the story introduces the reader to the Chinese Zodiac and the characteristics of the Rabbit. It's a cute & fun story, much enhanced by the colorful & lively illustrations. --Asian Mommy
