Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Several new interactive titles offer visual and musical excitement. Rosemary Wells's perennial stars return for a postal adventure in Bunny Mail: A Max & Ruby Lift-the-Flap Book. Readers lift flaps to peer inside each missive. Max's summertime letter to Santa (marked only with tire tread marks, to indicate his desire for a new scooter) instead arrives at Grandma's house (thanks to an enterprising postman). Confused, she sends him back a picture of a tractor. The misunderstanding is finally corrected in this adorable addition to the series. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Max, the irrepressible bunny, is back, with his sister Ruby, delighting readers again with his antics. This time, even though it is July, Max craves a red Sand-Spitter motorcycle like Wilma Warthog's. He "writes" his request to Santa. The mailman decides, sensibly, that the letter should go to Grandma along with Ruby's invitation to the Fourth of July picnic. The invitation is there in the book for us to open and read. We can also open Max's note, which shows only tire tracks. This puzzles his grandmother. When along with Max we open her note in reply, we know that he is wondering about the picture of a bulldozer inside which he thinks is from Santa. He sends back another note, with red paint on the tire track. And so the letters, which we can open and enjoy, go back and forth, puzzling both Max and Grandma, until Wilma rides by on her cycle and Grandma "gets it." And so does a delighted Max, who sends his thank you to Santa. The characters are the chubby, cute, busy anthropomorphic bunnies we have come to know and love, along with all Wells's young readers and listeners. The flip-up letters firmly attached to the pages have special appeal. Although Max's notes are textless, he remembers to add "Bunnyhop" stamps of different denominations, a collection of which appear on the end-papers. And of course, "the Fourth of July picnic was a huge success." 2004, Viking/ Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 3 to 6.

My daughter loves this book. She is a big fan of the Max and Ruby books and this is one of her favorites. The book is durable for a picture book and has "lift flaps" to open the letters, which my daughter loves to do. The book has a cute story line and very nice illustrations, typical of this series.
