Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Denim and Pilkey parody a parody in this supremely silly effort. The jacket art, placing the title characters in the room featured in Goodnight Moon , loudly proclaims the author and artist's dependence on allusions; their book, dedicated to James Marshall, is clearly indebted to Marshall and Henry Allard's Stupids books, with a dose of Marshall's version of Goldilocks thrown in for good measure. Here, three roly-poly, bucktoothed pink bunnies grin goofily as they leave their porridge on the table and head to town. Poppa Bunny wears polka-dotted Y-front briefs and scratches his head in befuddlement, Baby Bunny picks his nose and puts ketchup on his watermelon, and Momma Bunny wears obnoxious harlequin glasses and a baseball cap marked ``Duh.'' Meanwhile, back at their ``log cabin made out of bricks,'' Little Red Goldilocks (who has skin ``as white as snow'') makes herself comfortable. Denim's deadpan narration complements the all-out corniness of Pilkey's colorful illustrations, but it doesn't capture the amiability of the Stupids (or, for that matter, of Pilkey's beatifically bemused Dragon). Ages 4-8. (Jan.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-A cross between Harry Allard's ``The Stupids'' (Houghton) and a fractured fairy tale. A moronic rabbit family lives in a ``log cabin made out of bricks,'' bowls a game of baseball at the public library, and has lunch in a car wash. While they are out, their home is invaded by Little Red Goldilocks. Poppa Bunny wears red polka-dotted jockey shorts and Momma wears a short skirt and bra. Poppa, Momma, and Baby Bunny all have very prominent overbites. Many of the jokes require a degree of sophistication beyond that of average primary graders: the Bunnies drive a Yugo, Baby Bunny uses a pimple cream called Zit-B-Gone, and Momma sings ``Feelings'' and wears butterfly wing glasses. Book titles at the library include The Condo that Jack Subleased, Pair `O Dice Lost, The Second to the Last of the Mohicans, and Moby Richard. Some of the slapstick humor will appeal to youngsters, e.g., pouring porridge down pants and on heads, ice skating on the bottom of an unfrozen lake, letting Baby Bunny drive the car, and flushing Little Red Goldilocks down the toilet. The most appreciative audience for this title, however, will be older students who grew up with the Stupids and now have the experience to appreciate the more subtle visual humor.-Eunice Weech, M.L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
Carolyn Phelan
"Once upon a time there were three dumb bunnies who lived in a log cabin made out of bricks." Dedicated to James Marshall, this picture book affectionately parodies the characters from the "Stupids" series, the plot from "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", and, in the jacket illustration, the "great green room" from "Good Night, Moon". The book jacket will attract any smart aleck who knows the original and enjoys seeing its cozy elements replaced with good-natured zaniness: underpants on the drying rack, a goldfish bowl in the fireplace, lava lamps on the mantle, a bowl of Spam on the table, and dumb bunnies grinning at their audience. Inside, the humor is equally visual, often clever, sometimes just dumb, and scattershot in terms of age level. Fans of the Stupids and fractured fairy tales will like the dumb bunnies, too, but somewhere between the time Baby Bunny cries "Somebody's been using my pimple cream" and when he flushes Little Red Goldilocks down the toilet, things have pretty well gotten out of hand, never to return. Unsatisfying as a whole, though kids will laugh out loud at some of the funny bits.

    awesome and hilariously funny book for kids

    I read this book to my 3 yr old cousin for a Childrens Literature class assignment I had at college, and he we BOTH laughed the whole way through it!! He liked to point out the things that the bunnies did that was stupid. He especially liked the baby bunny pouring his 'oatmeal' down his pants and when 'Little Red Goldielocks' was flushed down the toliet. He also seemed to really study the illustrations closely. I give this book 5 stars! I plan on getting him some more 'Dumb Bunnies' books for Christmas!

    Everlasting

    It is Dr. Sues' birthday this month so at the elementary school I work at we are doing nothing but reading. One of my co-workers bought a book at the book fair. That had to be the funniest, most delightful book I have ever read! In today's world it is great to have a good hard laugh, no matter how old you are. We want the whole series!!
