Davy in the Middle

Overview

Poor Davy is stuck in the middle. He's too little to go hiking on the mountain with big brother Dan and he's too big to play hop-on-pop with Donny, Daisy, and Dinah. But he's just right whenever the rest of the Rabbit family needs him to do something for them — like babysit. One day Davy has had enough! He storms out of the burrow and runs to his special hideout to sulk. "No one loves me!" he wails. Davy is wrong, though. His family loves him a lot, and they come up with a ...

Overview

Poor Davy is stuck in the middle. He's too little to go hiking on the mountain with big brother Dan and he's too big to play hop-on-pop with Donny, Daisy, and Dinah. But he's just right whenever the rest of the Rabbit family needs him to do something for them — like babysit. One day Davy has had enough! He storms out of the burrow and runs to his special hideout to sulk. "No one loves me!" he wails. Davy is wrong, though. His family loves him a lot, and they come up with a wonderful surprise to show him just how much.
As in the other books in the popular Davy series, this new story explores common childhood concerns sweetly and sympathetically, capturing middle-child blues with humor and insight.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Favorite friends and series contribute to a bouquet of spring books. A follow-up to What's the Matter, Davy?, Davy in the Middle by Brigitte Weninger, illus. by Eve Tharlet, finds the beleaguered bunny feeling lost and lonesome: "I'm never allowed to do what I want. I'm too small or too big to do anything fun, but whenever anyone needs me to do something for them, I'm just right." Davy's whole family comes together to show him how much they do care. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Davy is too big to play with the little kids, and too little to play with the big ones. Because of Davy's helpful nature, his parents are always asking him to help around the house. Since Davy is so helpful, he always felt picked on and not loved. So, his family decided to surprise him with a big "Thank You" party. Davy may be too big for some things, and too small for others, but to his family he is just right. The delightful watercolor pictures depict this rabbit family acting like humans. As the other books in the "Davy" series, this one addresses childhood concerns in a manner that young children will understand. Children will be able to identify with the rabbit family, and especially the main character Davy whose struggles are so similar to their own. This is an endearing family story that is beneficial for children who are feeling in the middle of their family as well as their siblings. 2004, North-South Books, Ages 4 to 8.
—Nicole Peterson
School Library Journal
PreS-The trials and tribulations of being the middle child is the subject of this tale, which stars a rabbit family featured in several other titles. Davy is too small to go hiking with his older brother, but too big to play "hop-on-pop" with his younger siblings. However, it seems that he is just the right size to baby-sit his sister. Of course, Dinah has her own idea of fun activities and they don't coincide with Davy's plans. He feels sorry for himself and runs off. Father Rabbit identifies his son's problem and honors Davy at a party to show how much he is loved and appreciated. All ends well, with the youngster enjoying center stage. Tharlet's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are done in mostly earth tones and reflect the bunny's anguish and joy. The picture of him huddled up with his toy rabbit in the hollow of a tree with Dinah eavesdropping on his conversation is endearing. This story will be enjoyed by middle siblings everywhere.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
