Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Our hero, a feckless bunny, is off through a strange hole in his bathroom floor into a sequence of wild cartoon adventures somehow related to a mysterious bottle of barbeque sauce. Back he goes to prehistoric times to meet dinosaurs, mechanical monsters, and a Wizard of Oz-type inventor, all tumbled together into large and small spaces from comic-book style on up. A text-less, double-page scene of stampeding creatures is particularly scary. The text appears only in speech balloons and sound effects. Scenes are loaded with details that encourage closer examination rather than racing through the hyperactive adventures. Our cartoon hero must save the world from power-hungry Neanderthals; his return to the present is abrupt but a relief. This is book 1 of Stone Rabbit. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Kirkus Reviews
While flossing, Stone Rabbit discovers a bottomless pit of doom in his bathroom floor-one more reason to hate Mondays. He's sucked into the hole and through a time vortex of laughing clocks that dumps him in a T. Rex nest. He escapes several herds of dinos only to find himself mistaken for a god by a tribe of stoneage bunnies. When their village is destroyed and the population captured by a hightech CroMagnon named Willie, Stone Rabbit comes to the rescue (reluctantly). In gratitude, they find a way to send him home. Author of 2006's Manga Claus and a webcomic (for older people) also starring Stone Rabbit, Craddock's first graphic outing for children is Saturdaymorning cartoons all over again-bright, fullcolor, googlyeyed adventures that zip by in a rush of nonsensical fun. Readers will be rereaders, and they'll want volume two, Pirate Palooza (9780375856600)
