Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2—One day, Emily and her rabbit are launching themselves into outer space to look for alien life-forms when they are interrupted by the Chief Footman to Queen Gloriana. He offers to trade a golden teddy bear for Bunnywunny. " 'No, thank you,' said Emily Brown. 'This rabbit is NOT for sale. And his name isn't Bunnywunny. It's STANLEY.'" But Queen Gloriana will not take no for an answer, and repeatedly sends her military staff to offer undesirable toys to Emily in trade for her rabbit. After several more refusals from an increasingly irritated little girl, the special commandos sneak into her bedroom at night and steal Stanley. Emily Brown storms the palace and confronts the queen, who cannot understand why Bunnywunny looks so miserable. So Emily takes pity on the silly queen and whispers the secret of how to have a happy toy. This gem of a book features a spunky child with a terrific imagination. The wacky illustrations, done in collage, pen and ink, and watercolor, perfectly depict the joy and energy of the companions' playtime activities. The exuberant text makes use of various fonts and cartoon-bubble dialogue. This book has loads of child appeal. Emily Brown clutching Stanley brings to mind Mo Willems's equally expressive Trixie and her beloved Knuffle Bunny. Pair these two books for a delightful storytime about favorite bunnies.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

From Booklist

Emily owns an old stuffed rabbit named Stanley. One day, a footman appears and informs her that the queen has noticed her bunny and is offering a brand-new teddy bear in exchange. Emily isn't interested even after the queen ups the ante, offering dolls and rocking horses in addition to the bear. Then Emily wakes up, and Stanley is gone. Very cross, she runs to the palace, but when she confronts the queen, she decides to share the secret of how to love the new teddy into the perfect shape: "Play with him . . . sleep with him . . . hold him . . and be sure to have lots of adventures." Adventures make up much of the book here, as Emily and Stanley go to the rain forest and the desert in artwork that is sometimes collage and sometimes squiggly drawings, dabbed with color. Pair this satisfying story with Mo Willems' Knuffle Bunny (2004); with her fried-pancake eyes, Emily could be a cousin to Willems' Trixie. Ilene Cooper
