Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
I do not quite know where to start with this review. To say it is about a dumb family is putting it mildly. It is hard to believe that each member is dumber than the next one. Unfortunately, complete silliness is not my favorite to read, and I dislike the word dumb when referring to individuals; however, the story itself is amusing in places. After picking flowers and vegetables, the Bunny family decides to go to the zoo. Of course all the Baby Bunny picks is his nose. At the zoo they decide to look around and see a little bird sitting on a sign saying, "elephants." Naturally they think elephants have wings and feathers. When they see a butterfly sitting on the "Lion" sign they think the lion is out of his cage and they start screaming and cause a panic in the zoo. Poppy and Baby Bunny let all the animals out of their cages and tell them to run away to safety. When the police understand what has happened, the Bunny family is kicked out of the park. Nothing stands out in this book. It is just a plain, old, silly story. Even on the cover page, the author states that the illustrations in the book were done with "watercolors, acrylics, India ink, low-fat vanilla yogurt, creamed asparagus, and Tang Instant Breakfast Drink." I can see that a child would enjoy this book. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs

Gr 1-3More calculated and savvy stupid stuff, this fourth story continues in the same vein as the previous three titles. The Bunny family goes to the zoo, mistakes a butterfly resting on the lion sign for a real lion, panics and lets all of the animals out of their cages before finally being encouraged to leave. It isn't the story, though, that draws the laughs. It's Pilkey's wacky cartoon art done in watercolors, acrylics, India ink (and vanilla yogurt, creamed asparagus, and Tang Instant Breakfast Drink, if one checks the front matter). Word play, calculated misspellings, allusions galore, funny signs, and slapstick humor assault readers at every turn. Some of the humor is generally above the heads of the intended audience but provides a stretch for precocious youngsters and a snort for the hapless adult called upon to read the story aloud. Even the underwear is noisy: Poppa Bunny's is decorated with yellow smiley faces that scream when the lion is let loose. Silly as it is, this book is sure to go around a classroom like wildfire as children rush to point out to one another the good bits, funny parts, and grossness. It's bound to be read to tattersjust as its predecessors have been.Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA

this is one of my favorite books to read to my 7 year old. there are so many wonderfully funny ideas, that you may not notice them all the first time you read it. i laugh every time.

We laughed till it hurt on this book! We loved it. The dumb bunnies are so stupid that you have to laugh at them. Be sure to look at the detail of the pictures too though. That's part of the humor.

My 4 year old daughter borrowed this book from the library, and we read it every night for a week. She giggles herself right off the bed! She asked the librarian if they had any other 'Dumb Bunny' books on our next visit, this week we're reading the original Dumb Bunnies. The Easter Dumb Bunnies will be in her basket this year!

This book is one of my favorites. We got these books for my younger brother and he loves to read about the adventures that these three adorable characters get into. It's really funny because they want to go somewhere to see great works of art and they end up at the zoo!! If you're looking for a good time, this book is the way to go. It's great for people of all ages who have a big imagination. I can't wait to read the other books by this great author.
