Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Detailed, saturated color illustrations with humorous depictions of six rabbits of varying shapes and sizes steal the show in this slight, lighthearted French import. The rabbits find a huge carrot, and they immediately begin coming up with ideas on how to best utilize the unusual find. Should it be used as a boat? A plane? In a garden? The pink-cheeked rabbits work as a team, whether carrying the carrot (note the shortest bunny), dancing in a chorus line, fishing, or watering their garden in spiffy straw hats perched on the tips of their ears. The tongue-in-cheek question-and-answer format will draw children into the story, though the small rectangular format dictates the book be shared with an intimate group or one-on-one. Pair this with Ed Young’s Seven Blind Mice (1992), both stories of animals that neatly combine cluelessness and vivid imaginations. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Maryann Owen

This is an absolutely beautifully-illustrated book and cute story, with few words on each page and a kind of repetition that is actually pleasant. Great for toddlers.

So beautiful. I see something new every time I look through this book. But now, I really wish--truly wish--the touching book about the bird, Je peux le faire/Questo posso farlo (?) might be available someday on Amazon.
