Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Another satisfying tale about a very childlike bunny. The Sports Spectacular is only one week away, and Clyde, who never seems to be chosen for any team, is already getting that "left-out feeling." As time goes by, his anxiety increases, spurred on by the caustic comments of his athletic older brother. Then Clyde's friend Rosemary tells him that she will be performing in the freestyle acrobatic event, which does not involve a team. With her help and the support of Coach Bunnstein, Clyde discovers that his natural talent for tumbling and his strong sense of individualism add up to an innovative trampoline routine that allows him to shine on the big day. Lasky puts her finger on the day-to-day concerns of her target audience, presenting a realistic look at family relationships, friendships, and youngsters' fears and worries. Done in watercolor and ink, the cartoon illustrations include colorful settings of both home and school. Humorous details and warm hues help to keep the tone light. A solid choice for libraries looking for comforting slice-of-life stories.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

About the Author

Kathryn Lasky is the acclaimed author of more than forty books for children, including VISION OF BEAUTY: THE STORY OF SARAH BREEDLOVE WALKER; and SUGARING TIME, a Newbery Honor Book. She says TUMBLE BUNNIES is "part of the continuing saga of the problems that loom large in the lives of first graders as they try to figure out their world."

Marilyn Hafner loves Clyde and was happy to illustrate another book featuring him. "The stories about him," she says, "have the perfect take on the real fears of children as they start to face the world away from home."

Adorable bunny characters! Main character dreads the embarrassment of not being picked for a team, which is made worse by an older brother who does great in sports. He eventually finds a unique sport he does well at for the Sports Spectacular, with his own twist.
