Astro Bunnies

( 2 )

Overview

Looking suspiciously like toddlers in "feety" pajamas, these inquisitive bunnies launch their rockets and zoom away. Measuring comets and gathering moondust is nothing compared to floating weightless and meeting the three-eared bunnies from another planet! But no matter where astro bunnies roam, they will always come back home, especially when it's time to snuggle down for the night.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The creators of Cowboy Bunnies (Putnam, 1997) present another bunny endeavor of enormous proportions. "Astro bunnies/See a star/Think they'd like to/Go that far," and off they go, propelled by a jaunty, rhyming verse that has the same rhythm as "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star." In this bunny world, a crew of straight-faced, long-eared creatures mans the ground controls, while others suit up and board a tall rocket. Once in space, the astronauts see the sights, gather scientific information, walk on a planet, and befriend space bunnies. The illustrations, a mixture of gouache and computer techniques, are just right. Using bold, predominantly dark colors, they show each step of the journey, allowing readers to come along. "Rockets stand so/Straight and tall/Bunnies on the ground/Look small" gets a sideways double-page spread that shows a group of tiny rabbits looking in awe at a large, white object, while gold and green spotlights shimmer in the background. The view of the rocket launch is broken up into 12 squares that resemble television screens, giving an impression of motion and excitement. Everything about this mission is fun, right up to the satisfying ending: "Yet wherever/Bunnies go/There is one thing/They all know/Rockets fly and/Rockets roam/But bunnies ALWAYS/Come back home."- Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

A Child Magazine Best Book of 2001 Pick

This return engagement from the creators of Cowboy Bunnies propels young readers into outer space with sophisticated mixed-media illustrations and verse that sparkles with alliteration. A reassuring message at the end is just the ticket for pint-size adventurers.

    My son loves it!

    We have read this time and time again, yet I don't mind at all. Beautiful pictures and great rhyming text. My son has read this book with me since he was 2. The dark night/outer space skies are beautiful and almost liquid.

    Love those bunnies

    My daughter loves this book and I enjoy reading it to her over and over again, something i cannot always say about childrens' books. The pictures are fascinating to her and she loves the rhythm of the text. We found it one day in the library and immediately ordered it from this site. I can't say enough good things about this book; the illustrations are wonderful and the text is charming.
