Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Another crazy holiday with the dumb bunnies who on December 24th are getting ready for Easter. For kids who know the holidays, and the festivities and activities associated with them, the dumb bunny family will provide some laughs. But for some... it may be just too dumb!
Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
It is December 24th and the Dumb Bunnies are preparing to celebrate a non-traditional Easter. Beginning with a shamrock adorned sign that declares "Merry Halloween" the Bunnies carry on with their festivities by nailing valentines to the walls and windows, selecting their Easter tree, hanging decorations on themselves, and spray-painting fried eggs. They spend the night awaiting the arrival of the Easter Bunny, who appears in a red minivan pulled by flying pilgrims to drop raw eggs down the chimney. Anyone already familiar with the Dumb Bunnies will get exactly what they expect from this newest title. Preschoolers and kindergarteners will roll with the oh-so-obvious humor. "I'm good at picking things," says Baby Bunny, knuckle deep into his nostril. The illustrations, done with "watercolors, India ink, acrylics, and Hamburger Helper" provide the perfect bucktoothed bunnies for the simple illustrations that pair beautifully with the simple story. Anyone who enjoys a little silly humor now and then is sure to appreciate sharing the holiday with these Bunnies. Reviewer: Sharon Oliver

K-Gr 2-The Dumb Bunnies get ready on December 24th to celebrate Easter by hanging a Merry Halloween sign with shamrocks on it, buying an Easter tree, spray-painting fried eggs, and waiting for Santa, who arrives in a red minivan pulled by eight flying pilgrims. Such goofiness makes for a fun read, and that's why Harry Allard and James Marshall were so successful with the Stupids (Houghton). There is absolutely nothing new here, however, except that the characters are rabbits. The style of art is much like Marshall's; even the page outlines and type are the same. At first glance, one would swear this is another installment of Space Case (Dial, 1980). For Marshall's many fans, it may be a welcome story; however, be forewarned that it falls short of the inspired silliness of the Stupids.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY

Dumb Bunnies' Easter 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

What a horrible title!  The story is O.K., but as for the title, as an educator, we discourage students from calling someone dumb; and this writer (I refuse to call him an author.  Dickens was an author, this person is a writer), makes light of such a demeaning word.  If he had  used another adjective, "silly" or "funny" it would not be so bad.

The Dumb Bunnies strike again in this laugh-out-loud book about the holidays. I loved these books growing up and now I'm passing them on to my own children. Dav Pilky is a fabulous children's writer and these Dumb Bunny books showcase that. Highly recommend!!
