Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rosemary Wells's popular rabbits return for Bunny Party. This time around, Max and Ruby host a birthday bash for Grandma. But each time Ruby sets the table, Max not only replaces Ruby's guests with his own, he also adds a few more in the process. (Viking, $15.99 32p ages 3-8 ISBN 0-670-03501-7; Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The preparation for Max and Ruby's birthday party for Grandma gives some practice in counting from one to ten as Ruby tries to organize the guests. Max, as usual, insists on his own plans. The toy guests, from Rapunzel and Pinocchio to the Jellyball Shooter Spider and the Ear-Splitter Space Cadet are all welcomed by Grandma, who makes sure they all get snappers, candy Kisses, and ice cream. Here Wells's peripatetic "bunnies" are joined by a cast of ten charming characters introduced on the endpapers. The mixed media, colored drawings create a series of humorous interactions as Max displays his inventive imagination in this good-natured romp. 2001, Viking/Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, $15.99. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Ruby is giving a birthday party for Grandma. As usual, she has taken care of all the details, inviting all of the guests without consulting her brother. Max is not at all pleased with the guest list; all of Ruby's favorite dolls are invited, but none of his. When he asks to bring three favorites, his sibling vetoes the idea and thus begins his innocently subversive method of sneaking his friends into the party. Just as Ruby begins to figure out what's happening, the guest of honor knocks at the door and the party crashers are the first to greet her. The colorful mixed-media illustrations are delightful, catching the mischievous rabbit and all his antics. Charming fun and a little counting practice rolled into one.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Fun sibling antics

    My kids and I still love this book, even though they're teenagers now. It's fun when a younger sibling can put one over on a big sister.
